Thank you for helping Dayton Public Library
qualify for Thrivent’s matching grant of $300! We raised more than the goal amount, and we so appreciate the community's support (and the support of former community members) in helping the library thrive!
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.

Gifts for the hard-to-shop-for
We know you're starting to panic. With just a few weeks left in the holiday season, you still needs Christmas gift ideas for some of the people on your list: the babysitter you want to keep happy, the co-worker you drew in the office Secret Santa exchange, the in-laws who have everything, the new niece or nephew who already seems to have so much for such a tiny person.Wed, 11 Dec 2013 16:00:16 EST
