Staff - Branch Highlight

The East Branch is operated by six staff members and three library aides. The experienced and helpful team provides quality customer service to patrons of all ages, including technical support for computers and devices and guidance on accessing DML downloadable materials.

Community Connection

The East Branch is one of the oldest branches in our system. Strong community partnerships - including those with Walnut Hills Neighborhood Association, The Glen, Belmont High School, Dayton Council on Health Equity, WILC (Wright Independent Learning Cooperative), Goodwill, Cleveland School after-school programs, and YMCA summer camps - ensure that residents are able to take advantage of programming for all ages.


Construction of a 24,000 square foot branch next to Belmont High School is well underway. Meeting rooms and the Opportunity Space will be configured in a conference center-style. Completion is slated for Spring 2019. Click here to see renderings and a floor plan.
