Build A Better Community

4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Vandalia
Dayton Metro Library is welcoming The Collaboratory, Dayton's civic innovation lab, to engage residents around the county and listen to their ideas for building a better community.  From May through July, Peter and James from The Collaboratory will be visiting Library Branches to talk to patrons about their personal passions and ideas for their neighborhoods, communities, or the region.  Look for their mobile white board to brainstorm with them or work through a concept for a specific initiative.  The ideas with the biggest impact will be shared at a community workshop in late summer at the Main Library. The workshop will be open to anyone who participated at one of the branches.
