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
