The Main Library, located at 215 E. Third Street in downtown Dayton, will be closed on Saturday, May 25. All other Branches of the Dayton Metro Library system will remain open regular operating hours, 9:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m., on that date.
All Dayton Metro Library locations will be closed Sunday and Monday in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Regular operating hours resume at all locations on Tuesday, May 28, at 9:30 a.m.
Regarding the Main Library closing on Saturday, Executive Director Tim Kambitsch stated, “It is our first responsibility to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our patrons and staff. The Dayton Police Department and other first responders will have intensive resources deployed for a rally taking place on Courthouse Square on that date, and as such, are unable to assure rapid response should any health or safety issue arise at the Main Library.”
