Welcome to our brand new web site!

Check out our updated look! This new site is designed to work on lots of different devices, from phones to tablets to computers.

Unfortunately, our old website was compromised with malicious code and had to be taken down in late February. Rebuilding the various sections of the old site takes time - some features are easier to bring back than others.

The following features are available to you now:
• Research and Databases (including Dayton Remembers images)
• Catalog and My Account
• Locations and Hours
• About Us - policies and procedures
• Pay Your Fines on the Web
• Downloadable Ebooks and Audio Books
• KnowItNow – online answers from a librarian
• Spotlight on Your Library – schedule of activities for all ages
• Zinio – our brand new service for downloading current magazines

We are working to rebuild our Searchable Events Calendar.

Because of their complexity, some things will take a little longer to bring back. These include the Newly Ordered and Most Requested Books, Movies and Music (one of the more popular sections of our website) the Kids and Teens pages, Dayton Obituaries, and others.

The library's catalog and accounts were not compromised, and your account information remains secure.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work on our website. We'll eventually have it all back up and running and better than ever!
