T-23: Countdown to Opening Weekend!

The Dayton Program Room hosted thousands of adult programs in the 23 years following its opening in 1990, from book discussions and concerts to author talks and art exhibits.  While the physical structure was demolished last year to make way for a much expanded, sate-of-the-art program room suite in the new Library, a portion of this complex will retain the Dayton Program Room name in recognition of this rich history.
