Vehicles and more made from Warped Wing Brewing Company Trotwood Lager cans are on display at the Trotwood branch through February.

They were made by Tom Brown, a former resident who graduated from Trotwood-Madison schools in 1968. He retired from General Motors after 30 years of work and was on the fire department 33 years, 3 months, and 3 days. https://www.facebook.com/DaytonMetroLibrary/photos/a.10150582911601604.379756.42791226603/10154046680011604/?type=3

Meet YOUR Branch Manager: Cheryl Wirtley, Miami Township Branch Library

 

Cheryl WirtleyWhen the doors to the newly remodeled Miami Township Branch Library reopened on November 14, 2015, Branch Manager Cheryl Wirtley was there to welcome visitors to the new, improved Library.

“Recently, someone asked me what I’m looking forward to,” Wirtley said. “Well, we just completed the event I was looking forward to the most! So now, I’m eager to see what opportunities and discoveries will come with our newly expanded building.”  

Cheryl Wirtley has been Manager of the Miami Township Branch since 2007.


Q. Where did you work prior to Miami Township?
A. I was hired by Dayton Metro Library in 1997 and worked at the Main Library in Adult Services, then I was a Reference Librarian at the Miamisburg Branch. I was New Lebanon Branch Manager before coming to Miami Township.


Q. What do you enjoy most about your job?
A. Helping people find the answers to their questions is always rewarding, especially helping children find a book they’ll love. Right now, I love watching people in the new building, using the Library for such a variety of activities - study rooms, reading, tutoring, studying, the Imagination Destination students. We are exactly what the new Library was meant to be.


Q. What are your community activities?
A. I serve on the Community Foundation of Miami Township. This nonprofit organization raises funds for the community, Library, parks – like the park shelter at Miami View. I also work with staff at the Miami Township Government Center. I was a member of the oversight committee for the Dayton Mall master plan and various committees.


Q. Are there any special Library services or activities you’d like folks to know about?
A.  There have been so many upgrades and improvements in our Library, including new technology, designated Teen and Children’s areas and an enclosed Quiet Reading Room. I’m especially happy to note that we have far more community space to offer organizations, partners and study groups. Our new Community Room accommodates up to 70 people, theatre style, has quality AV equipment and is available for after-hours use. We also have three study rooms and a group study room, plus a large Opportunity Space available for partnerships on a longer-term basis.


Q. Beyond the Library, what are your personal interests and activities?
A. I look forward to walking in the park when the weather improves! I have a new nephew I adore and I love spending time with family.  


Q. If you could invite any fictional character to come visit your Library tomorrow, who would you invite and why?
A. I would invite Pippi Longstocking so we could play together with the kids in the new Club House!

The Miami Township Branch Library is located at 2718 Lyons Road, near the Government Center, Police and Fire Departments and RTA Hub.
