COLUMBIA — A new visitors center will open in Columbia's Daniel Boone City Building on Aug. 31.
The City Hall Visitors Center will replace the Lake of the Woods location, which is set to close on Sept. 30. The previous center has been open since 2003.
The new visitors center will be staffed by volunteers from the Columbia Hospitality Corps and will be open Fridays and Saturdays starting Aug. 31. In October the center will be open Monday through Saturday, according to a city news release.
Visitors and residents will be able to stop by the center for a cup of coffee and find out more about Columbia attractions and events.
The city is seeking additional volunteers to staff the center. Volunteer training sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 22, from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 5 and from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 25 at city hall. Prospective volunteers can apply on the city's website.
