Dayton Public Library will be starting a book club on Wednesdays from 6 to 7 pm after the holidays. If interested, call, stop by, “like” the FB post, or email (DPL@LVCTA.COM).
The format, selections and "rules" can all be decided by the participants. The director can help with lists of books that might be readily available and recommended for book clubs, provide pre-published discussion questions, and obtain books for everyone. Options include coffee, wine and/or snacks provided by participants, everyone read the same book or everyone read different books and discuss and rate the books. Suggestions for number of members ranged from 5 to 8 to 8 to 16, the latter of which allows for plenty of members even if some can't attend every time. Usually meetings are once a month or every six weeks. Some incorporate a food theme. The library can help provide equipment and materials as needed.
Welcome to the Dayton Public Library! Our library was established before 1900 in Dayton, Iowa, when a few women each purchased some books to exchange. As the collection grew, the books were housed in the back of the local bank with access provided only to local schoolchildren. Later, a women's club was organized and began operating the library which was moved to the high school. Due to overcrowding, the library relocated to an old bank building where it remained until the current building was erected in 1966. This new building included the post office and city council chambers. In 1993 the council chambers were relocated, allowing the library to expand into the additional space for a total of 1406 square feet.
The Dayton Public Library is accredited by the State Library of Iowa. It is the library's mission to provide citizens with equal access to information and ideas in order to lead an enriched life through lifelong learning.

Opinion: Trump will continue to rewrite the rules
In Cincinnati, Donald Trump said that others were comparing him to Andrew Jackson. Nearly two centuries ago, however, that same Andrew Jackson acknowledged that his famous self-confidence had limits. "A diffidence, perhaps too just, in my own qualifications," he said in his first inaugural address, "will teach me to look with reverence to the examples of public virtue left by my illustrious predecessors."Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:36:47 GMT
