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 they established the library in 1940 at which time it was moved to the high school.  The women’s club sponsored the library until 1945, after which it became tax-supported in order to maintain a free public library for the town.  Due to overcrowding, the library relocated to a former bank building where it remained until the current building was erected in 1966.  This new building included the post office and the city council chambers.  In 1993 the council chambers were relocated, allowing the library to expand 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.


The Board of Trustees meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 5 pm at the library, except December.

Open Book Club meets the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm (possible exception in November/December).




Open Book Club for adults began February 22, 2017, and is open to anyone who is interested.  Attend one or some or all—it is not necessary to attend every club meeting or read every book or even all of the month’s selection to attend.


Books are provided by the library, hence it is necessary for the librarian to typically select books that are readily available as sets from local libraries.  Attendees are welcome to bring a beverage of choice, including undistilled adult beverages.  Ask, and the librarian will also make coffee. 


Enjoy a relaxing and fun night away from home . . . it’s free and all are welcome!

Opinion: EPA cuts could risk a public health emergency
With time running out for Congress to reach an agreement on the budget, lawmakers are advancing a quiet but crippling assault on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which has already suffered years of hollowing out from budget cuts. At stake is the EPA's fundamental ability to carry out its most basic public health and environmental missions. Without full funding for the agency, the health of our children, our seniors and our communities are at risk.
