Your Dayton Metro Library is PHASING BACK to NORMAL! We are happy to resume Library services you’ve missed during the past year!
Masks and social distancing are no longer required in the Library; they are optional for anyone (visitors or staff) who prefers them. Below you will find our phased plan for our returning services
Current Hours, All Locations Open: Mon, Tue, Thu: 9:30 AM - 8:30 PM | Wed, Fri, Sat: 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM | Closed Sunday
Reserve items you want using our online catalog, or call the Ask Me Line at 937.463.2665 for assistance. You will be notified when your items are ready to be borrowed. At that time, call the Library to make arrangements for Curbside Service, or use the convenient DML App on your phone or device. Bagged materials are placed directly into vehicle trunks.*
on the Library App
Make arrangements for picking up your requested materials - without having to call. If you already have the DML app installed on your phone or device, My Curbside Pickup is activated when you have materials ready for you to borrow. If you need to install the app, search for “Dayton Library” in the App Store, Google Play or Kindle.
*At some Branch Libraries you may have to park and exit your car to pick up your bagged materials at the Library entrance.
Expanded Curbside Services!
In addition to picking up Library materials you’ve requested, Curbside Service now includes copying, faxing and scanning. Print items directly from your phone, tablet or computer to the Branch where you want to pick them up using Mobile Print. Call the Ask Me Line at 937.463.2665 to make arrangements for these services.
