The Dayton Metro Library Is a Place for Discovery

Informing, Inspiring and Enriching Our Community

The Dayton Metro Library brings people of all ages and backgrounds together to discover new things about the world, themselves, and each other. Within our Branches and beyond our walls, we are advocates for exploration, champions of literacy, and active facilitators of empowerment, inclusion, and positive change.

A Tradition of Excellence

Since the founding of the Library in 1888, we've consistently met the changing needs of our diverse and growing community. Our materials, programs, and initiatives cover countless topics for all ages. We are unwavering in our focus on excellence, and we are passionate about providing consistent, quality service in our six outcomes. Explore the Annual Report to see our impact.
