Dayton Metro Library expands curbside services

Dayton Metro Library patrons will be able to have items, copied, faxed, scanned and printed while they wait at outside as the library continues to expand its curbside services.

“Our curbside services are designed to accommodate people who are working hard to help slow the spread of the coronavirus by avoiding unnecessary contact with others, or who cannot wear a mask,” said Rachel Gut, deputy director of the library.

Masks are required inside all Dayton Metro Library branches for ages 6 and up.

Curbside services are available at all branches from Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those who want to have items copied, faxed, scanned or print need to make arrangements through the Ask Me Line at 937-463-2665.

Dayton Metro Library has offered curbside picked up books and other materials since June. Now patrons will be able to drop off originals to be scanned, faxed or copied and wait at the curb as the service is done. Library staff will take payment and the item needed to complete the job and then return the originals, copies or prints and any paperwork showing the job was finished.

The library also has wireless printing, allowing patrons to send print jobs from their laptop, tablet or phone to the library of their choice. For more details, visit
