Concerts will be held at the main branch of the Dayton Metro Library

The Dayton Metro Library will begin a series of free Friday lunch concerts at the main branch of the Dayton Metro Library in downtown Dayton next week.

“For those who work downtown, a casual concert can be a great mid-day escape,” said Julie Buchanan, library programming manager. “Folks can bring their lunch and a friend, grab a seat, and enjoy some great music before returning to work.”
