Dayton Metro Library Bond Issue Passes

Montgomery County county overwhelmingly passed Issue 70 on Tuesday. The bond issue is a $187 million levy that will go towards consolidating the downtown main library branch and 20 other locations into 17 buildings.

In unofficial results, voters approved Issue 70 by a count of 62% to 38%.  Over 122,200 people voted for the measure, while just over 75,500 voters opposed it.

Tim Kambitsch of the Dayton Metro Library says the levy's passage will also allow for updates on suburban branches and improvements to the library's programming.
