Craig Lefteroff joined the Dayton Metro Library team in February, 2021, as Manager of the Kettering-Moraine Branch. He has worked in libraries since 2007, with stints in a number of different states, most recently Missouri. Born in Mississippi, he obtained his MLS from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, and has focused on public service and technology throughout his library career. When not reading horror novels or literary fiction, he enjoys bicycling, film, cooking, and keeping his cat entertained.
Kettering-Moraine has six full-time and three part-time permanent staff members. These staff members are responsible for reader’s advisory, collection maintenance, programming and assisting patrons with circulation and technology questions.
The Kettering-Moraine Branch has long been a strong partner in the community as the resource for neighbors coming together to support one another. As a donation location for organizations accepting toys, eyeglasses, clothing, and more for the needy - the Branch staff maintains strong connections with multiple service organizations and partners throughout the area.
The Kettering-Moraine Branch first opened in 1958 on land donated by the Kettering Board of Education. The building has been expanded and remodeled over the years, most extensively in 2015-2016 in the Libraries for a Smarter Future project. Reopened in October 2016, the Branch has a completely remodeled interior, accessible community space, an outdoor patio and a gizmos-themed Children’s Area. The work of three area artists is prominently featured in this Library.
