Ask Me Anything

Welcome to your Dayton Metro Library. You can use the Ask Me Anything form to contact a librarian, request an Interlibrary Loan, or get reading recommendations.

Welcome to our Electronic Reference Service


Our reference librarians can respond to your questions with brief factual answers, or refer you to sources or organizations where you can find further help. Normally, up to three questions or references can answered at one time. We usually respond within 24-48 hours after we receive your question; the question box is checked at various times throughout the day.

Note: Your zip code may help us recommend specific facilities and sources.
* Reply by fax may be subject to charges.

Enter your question in the box below. Please be specific and provide background information that might help us find an answer. If we are not certain what you are looking for, we will contact you for clarification. (Question is limited to 500 characters.)

Please check over the form and make sure your email address and phone number are correct.
