Dayton Metro Library Temporarily Suspends Service
The Dayton Metro Library is suspending operations at all locations beginning at 6:00 p.m. today, Friday, March 13.
Anyone who wants to pick up or check out materials should arrive at their local branch by 5:45 p.m. 
“We take seriously our role to help stall the spread of the Coronavirus for our patrons, staff and the community,” said Library Executive Director Tim Kambitsch in a news release. “This temporary suspension of services will help support our larger role of protecting the community’s safety during these unusual times.”  

The library is making more than 120 popular titles of digital audiobooks available for unlimited borrowing on their website. 

“Given that so many people are currently unable to go to school, work, or visit their library in person, we want to make as much of our digital collection available as possible,” said Holly Varley, DML Collection Development Director.

The library’s digital collection also includes downloadable or streaming TV shows and movies through Hoopla, eBooks through OverDrive, and digital magazines through RBdigital – all available on the library website. People who do not already have a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN can get an eCard online for immediate access to the digital collection.
