Branch Manager - Winnie Johnson

Ms. Johnson began her professional career with Dayton Metro Library in 2002 as a Children's Librarian at Madden Hills before becoming the Branch Manager in 2011. Ms. Johnson then served as Branch Manager of both the Madden Hills and Westwood Branches. In 2022, the two Branches were merged into the new West Branch, where Ms. Johnson remains the Branch Manager. Her favorite authors are James Patterson and Kimberla Lawson-Roby. She enjoys working in her flower garden, reading, and playing with her pups Mylo and Zoey.

Assistant Branch Manager - Ashlee Hammond

A native Daytonian, Ashlee Hammond grew up in the Madden Hills and Westwood areas. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Ashford University in 2016 and her MLIS from Kent State University in 2019. She is an alumnus of the Black Leadership Development Program through Parity, Inc. Her Library career began in 2011 as a Library Aide. Through the years, she’s continued to grow within the Dayton Metro Library system, working as both a Patron Services Assistant and Teen Services Librarian. Now she is the Assistant Branch Manager at the West Branch. Ashlee has always been inspired by this simple quote: “She believed she could, and so she did.”
