The Mary Gilkey Library is happy to announce that we now have cultural passes available for patron use! These passes are good for admission to: Gilbert House Children's Museum in Salem (up to 5 admissions at a time), and for Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville (up to 2 admissions at a time).
Passes may be checked out twice per calendar year per Dayton library cards. Patron checking out the pass must live inside Dayton's city limits, or have paid for a full membership to the library. Passes are due to the desk at the Mary Gilkey Library on by 12:00 noon on their due date, and are subject to a $5.00 per day fine for each day that they are late. Passes that are five or more days late will be charged $100 for the replacement value.
Please check the calendar on the Library's page to see if your desired date is available, and then fill out the request online to reserve your pass. When you stop in to pick it up, please bring your library card and a picture ID. Only the library card holder may pickup the pass.
Did you know that children in Dayton, ages 0-5 are eligible to receive a book every month for free? It's true! Dolly Parton's Imagination Library sends over one million books every month to children all over the USA. Every child gets a copy of "The Little Engine That Could" to start their collection, and their final book when graduating from the program is "Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come!"
Visit this link to see the books that were sent to kids during the month of August, to find out more information, or to sign a child up for the program.
Beginning Monday, April 8th, we will automatically renew items that you have checked out - as long as your account is in good standing and there are no holds on the item! Now you can return your items when it's more convenient for you, and worry less about building up late fees - at the libraries that charge them.
In order to receive notices about renewals, you must have given us permission to contact you via email. Please let a library staff member know if you would like to receive email notices the next time you stop in.
