Dayton Metro Library COVID-19 Response Update

Dayton Metro Library to temporarily Suspend Library Services

The FAQs of Suspended Service (updated 5-15-2020)

Digital Library Services 24/7

smaladletvirusDayton Metro Library is making more than 120 popular titles of digital audiobooks available for unlimited borrowing at our website. Titles include fiction and nonfiction for adults, teens and children. Any number of individuals can borrow these titles at the same time.

“Given that so many people are currently unable to go to school, work, or visit their library in person, we want to make as much of our digital collection available as possible,” said Holly Varley, DML Collection Development Director.

In addition to these audio titles, Dayton Metro Library’s digital collection includes downloadable or streaming TV shows and movies through Kanopy and Hoopla, eBooks through OverDrive, and digital magazines through RBdigital – all accessible on our website.

Individuals who do not already have a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN can get an eCard online for immediate access to the digital collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, databases, learning tools and streaming media.

DML has gathered useful links for those working from home, students who are home from school, and anyone looking for access to digital information and entertainment, at our 24/7 Digital Library webpage.
