Dayton Metro Library to temporarily Suspend Library Services
After much deliberation and consideration, the Dayton Metro Library has determined to suspend operations beginning at 6:00 p.m. today, Friday, March 13. Patrons who wish to pick up items on hold, or check out materials, should arrive at their Branch Library prior to 5:45 p.m. The Library’s Pandemic Response Team will regularly evaluate the situation, and concur with authoritative sources to determine the appropriate date to resume Library services. All Branches, Homebound and Outreach services will be impacted.
