A top priority of the Dayton Metro Library Foundation is to enhance the Library's facilities plan to bring new, modern libraries into neighborhoods all across the county. The Foundation offers opportunities for individuals, families, foundations, or corporations to reach beyond by sponsoring special places within the Main Library or the many new branches. With the construction, we have the opportunity to recognize, celebrate or remember those who believe in the power of education, literacy and community.
Donors at the levels listed below receive all the perks of The 1888 Society, plus naming opportunities reflective of the level of the gift. More than just rooms and spaces, these assets represent access to opportunity for our whole community.
Some naming opportunities include:
Recognition opportunities at this level include TeenEDGE Technology, Fireside Lounges, and Outdoor Reading Terraces.
Room naming opportunities to reflect the intent of your gift include Quiet Reading Rooms, Opportunity Spaces, Children's Imagine! Portals and special traveling exhibitions.
The Library is a cultural destination for our region. Naming rights at this level include the most significant and innovative assets and opportunity spaces, our Special Collections, Launch Point Collections, the Dayton Room, Community Rooms and customized spaces and programs.
