The Dayton Branch Library is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a series of events from May 2016 to February 2017. Each event will celebrate the people who support the library and the services it provides to the community.

The library held its ground-breaking on May 4, 1996 and opened its doors on Feb. 1, 1997. The first event in its anniversary celebration from 4 to 6 p.m. May 4 will honor the anniversary of the ground-breaking by again breaking ground to plant a commemorative plant outside the front door of the library. Refreshments will be served.
