Board of Trustees

The Dayton Metro Library Board of Trustees holds monthly meetings. These meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. Due to reconstruction of the Main Library, Board meeting will be held at alternate locations throughout the system. Locations will be posted on the website and announced at each meeting. Special meetings of the Board may be called and notice of the date, time, location and purpose of any special meetings will be published in the Dayton Daily News and as a part of the Library's web site. Any changes to the date, time and location of a regular meeting will also be on our website.

The general public is welcome to attend all meetings of the Board. Comments by visitors or by the general public are also welcome. If you wish to be added to the agenda, please contact the library at 937.463.2665 at least twenty-four hours in advance.
