Main Library's Drive-Through Window Closing

As a first step in construction and renovation of the downtown Dayton Metro Library, the drive-through window has closed. Paving in the parking lot and garden area, and the heavy equipment needed for the work, will prevent access to the window.

"The Main Library will undergo a major transformation over the next year, and this is just the beginning," said Chuck Duritsch, Manager of External Relations. "We apologize for the inconvenience to our patrons, but with several options, we hope to make that transition as comfortable as possible."

Alternatives for patrons who would have used the drive-through window are:

  • Patrons can come inside the Main Library to pick up or drop off materials.
  • Materials can be held at a different Library location for easier pick up.
  • Homebound Services can deliver materials to patrons with disabilities.
  • For patrons who indicate their disability creates hardship for them to enter the building, Circulation staff can walk books out the front door for pick up. (These patrons will need to have a cell phone and find a parking space in front of the Library.)

"While there will occasionally be inconveniences during the process, the public will eventually enjoy a completely renovated Main Library, with free parking being one of the many eagerly anticipated features," said Duritsch.
