In Downtown Dayton, the eclipse will peak just before 2:30pm. If you don't have safe eclipse glasses, it's not to late to make your own pinhole camera: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/…/pr…/how-to-make-a-pinhole-camera/. Dayton Metro Library locations do not have eclipse glasses to give away. Culturegrams is an online collection of reports about over 200 countries, written for upper-elementary school students and above. It provides statistics and information about each country's history, government, daily life and customs.

Hear national anthems, country name pronunciations, and the sounds of state birds. Includes photos, recipes, and interviews with children and adults from many different countries.

Whether you're a student writing a report or someone just interested in learning more about a particular country, Culturegrams is an excellent resource.

Library Services & Borrowing Materials

The Dayton Metro Library is proud to offer a wide variety of services to the residents of Montgomery County and the state of Ohio. From traditional library services, such as library card applications and interlibrary loans, to some of the more unique services such as voter registration and meeting room reservations, the library strives to offer services that support our mission to "...inform, inspire and enrich our community by linking individuals to information needed for personal success..."

We also recognize the need to grow and adjust as technology and economic pressures create new challenges for library patrons. We are constantly striving to meet those needs while keeping the cost at the same low price it has been for decades...FREE! The library's new open computer lab at Main and our early literacy programs are just two of the ways we are working to meet your needs.

If you don't find a service you are interested in listed, please call 937.463.BOOK (2665) and speak with one of our library staff members. We may offer something that can fit your needs or you may provide us with a valuable insight into an underserved need in our area.
