Dayton Unknown will be on Gem City Tonight!

We’ve been talking about the new local late-night style talk show Gem City Tonight a lot lately, and we are pleased to say that Dayton Unknown will be appearing as guests on the show!

We taped our appearance last night, and had such a blast doing it. The crew and audience were such a great group to be around.

You can watch our segment during the show that will air on Saturday, March 16th at 8pm.

According to DATV’s website, “DATV can be seen exclusively on Spectrum channel 5 in the City of Dayton, Riverside and Butler Twp. and channels 5, 6, or 23 in Dayton’s northern suburbs.” In addition, you can live-stream, and watch on YouTube.

Wright Library’s 80th Anniversary

On February 14th, 1939, Wright Memorial Library opened its doors in Oakwood. In 1913, the library started in the home of a local family and in 1916 a resolution was passed to establish a public library and the library’s location moved around a few times until a bond issue was passed to build a new building on Far Hills, on the site of the Katharine Wright Park.

On the opening night of February 14th, 1939, the lights went out, which required the crowd to tour their new library by candlelight. To celebrate 80 years of service to the community and commemorate the opening night, Wright Library held a candlelight celebration with historical items on display and a telling of the story of opening night.
