Caitlin joined the Dayton Metro Library as the Trotwood Branch Manager in May 2018. She is native to the Dayton area, and a two time graduate of Wright State University. Previously, she worked at the Washington-Centerville Public Library and as a school librarian for early childhood through 12th grade at The Miami Valley School. Caitlin has a passion for readers’ advisory and reference work for all ages from her years in higher education, library adult services, and school libraries. She enjoys reading memoirs and debut fiction.
The diverse community of Trotwood/Madison Township is served by six full time and one part time Public Service staff members and five shelving Aides at the Trotwood Branch. Every patron, no matter the age, can find reading, listening and viewing materials to check out with the aid of staff trained in Children's, Teen, and Adult services.
A vital partner in the Trotwood community, the Branch is an active participant in many community events including National Night Out, the Trotwood Block Party, and Harvest Family Fun Walk. The Branch is a valued resource for many smaller organizations that utilize the resources of the Library to grow and develop. The Trotwood Branch is a proud member of the Trotwood Chamber of Commerce, Trotwood-Madison Historical Society and the Trotwood Rotary.
NOTE: The branch is one location in Trotwood where children can get free lunches during the summer, provided by Trotwood-Madison City Schools.
Design work is underway for a new larger branch just a few blocks away from the current building at the corner of East Main Street and MacGregor Avenue. Construction should begin by the end of the year and the new branch is targeted to open by the end of 2019.
