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.
