Many of our friends, family and neighbors have been affected by the tornadoes that passed through our region on May 27. While several of our locations lost power and water, as of now, all Dayton Metro Libraries are open.

Please be aware that some local agencies are relying heavily on social media to make citizens aware of situational changes, water updates, street closures, cooling stations/shelters and more. Below we have provided links to Facebook and Twitter pages as we have found them.
