Although the Miami Township Branch is the newest in the Dayton Metro Library system, the current facility was inadequate given the pace of growth and high Library usage in this community. Site work has begun on an addition that will double the size of the Branch.
As part of the site plan, Dayton Metro Library is acquiring a portion of the RTA lot for parking. The entrance and exit from the property will also be improved.
The Miami Township Branch will remain open during most of the construction. Currently services are being provided in the east side of the existing building; later they will be moved to the new addition. The Branch will need to close briefly to accommodate the intermediate transition and the final move.
Levin Porter Associates, a member of the Dayton Design Collaborative, is working in conjunction with library design experts Group 4 Architects on this project. Skanska/ATCS is providing construction management services.

Barring any unexpected construction delays, the project should be completed by late summer 2015. The project is part of the Libraries for a Smarter Future system-wide facilities upgrade, made possible by strong voter support of a bond issue in 2012.

The new Library will feature an expanded Children’s area with a playhouse reading area, a dedicated space for middle and high school students called Teen Edge, and an enclosed Adult Reading Room. Other improvements include a larger meeting, four group study rooms, and a flexible meeting space to be shared with community partners.
