From traditional Library services, such as Library Card applications and interlibrary loan, to some of the more unique services, such as voter registration and Community Room reservations, Dayton Metro Library strives to offer services that support our mission to inform, inspire, and enrich our community.
Our collection is the soul of the Dayton Metro Library and it’s what has kept people coming back. We’re proud of our history, but we’re looking to the future to serve our patrons with a diverse and comprehensive collection. An extensive digital collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks on OverDrive, magazines through Zinio, music and video on Hoopla, and premium research databases complements our physical collection of more than 1 million items. Plus, Interlibrary Loan is available for those hard to find items.Learn More About Borrowing Policies + Fees
