Some people ask, "Are libraries relevant?" The Dayton Metro Library Foundation says "Yes!" The numbers tell the story of just how critical the Library is as a service center for the region:
It all adds up - the Library is an essential and active community resource!
The Dayton Metro Library Foundation is the multiplier. The Library currently serves the community in exciting and engaging ways, but with the support of the Foundation, the Library can enhance and expand its capacity to reach beyond.
Beyond the Library's impressive collection of books, music, magazines, movies, databases and more, we're imagining what the Library can be. Will there be a 3D printer in the new Opportunity Space? Will there be a high-quality sound system in the Off-Third Theater? Will the Library's youngest users have manipulatives that promote kindergarten readiness? Will our homebound seniors have access to tools and programs to help them feel connected? The answers to all these questions – and even more – can be "YES!" through your support of the Foundation.
