DAYTON PUBLIC LIBRARY IS CLOSED TODAY DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER AND SOUTHEAST WEBSTER-GRAND SCHOOL CLOSURE.

WEATHER-RELATED CLOSINGS
[adopted 2/2011]

Be It Resolved by the Board of Trustees of the Dayton Public Library:

In an effort to protect the safety of the City of Dayton employees employed at the Dayton Public Library, and to eliminate confusion as to whether the library should remain open or closed due to dangerous weather conditions, the Dayton Public Library will observe the same weather-related closings and early releases as the local school district, Southeast Webster-Grand Community Schools.

_________________________________________________________________________________

 

The above weather-related policy was adopted by the Board of Trustees in order to eliminate confusion and last-minute decision making concerning weather-related closings.  The intent is to promote safety in our community.  In addition to safety of employees, it is also important that children not risk travel to the library during dangerous weather conditions.  It is hoped that  consistently following the school district's closure decisions, and publicizing the library's weather policy, will not only simplify the library board and director's decision-making process, but also make it more consistent and clear to the community when to expect library closures.  Unfortunately, weather forecasts can be inaccurate due to unpredictable weather conditions, but the library's policy to follow school closures errs on the side of safety for our community.
