Dayton Metro Library Reviews
The building is very new and nice. Great place to hang out and read. Not a lot of print options for as big of a building as they have there. But it seemed like a great place to find some books and... more »

I LOVE my/this branch here on Philadelphia Ave. I frequent this location multiple times a week, with or without my family. The book selection is well-rounded. At times, you may have to request a book and have it sent over, but it's an easy process. The children have a variety of activities and programs to do here on a daily basis. My children never want to leave, and they have computers and game consoles at home. It's a nice, mild, hang-out for kids after school. It's an information hub for the community. And it's a wonderful place to introduce a toddler to reading. If your not into books or video games, there are events that take place here as well; from cooking classes to musical or poetic jam sessions. Every season the Philadelphia Ave branch of Dayton Public Library entices my family into it's world and we are greatful.
I Attempted to use the fax machine but only had a five dollar bill and did not want a pocketful of quarters when I was finished so I asked for change. The library staff had five ones left but would not make change. This seems asinine: I am a library patron wishing to utilize library services that cost money and is reasonable would require change be made. And to be honest, I was going to spend three of those dollars on the fax which the library staff could’ve easily recovered from the fax machine coin box. This is an example of an employee incapable of thinking outside of the box and realizing what her purpose is: to provide service for the patrons of the library. I suppose in her mind she was saving those five dollars to use for other transactions and in that way I do feel as though I was possibly discriminated against. why was my transaction not worthy of having change available? She was so concerned to make sure that there was change available for other future transactions, but when the time came to use the resources, she greedily hoarded them.
