Help us Replace the Bookmobile

Our current bookmobile has been serving thousands of children across Montgomery County since 2005. Last year our Bookmobile made 472 stops to local partners, served 16,218 children, and distributed 28,171 books. Help us keep that momentum and love of reading going through a donation towards our new bookmobile.


The Dayton Metro Library relies on both public and private support. Private donations fund programs and services critical to the advancement of our libraries as a trusted community resource. Whether you’re passionate about bridging the digital divide, helping spark curiosity for children, supporting adult learners with the tools and skills needed to lead, a donation in support of the Dayton Metro Library makes a tremendous impact in our community.
