Dayton credit union plans new branch where library closed

Freedom 1st Credit Union is aiming to open a new branch in Brookville.

The local credit union recently purchased the former Dayton Metro Library branch at 425 Rona Pkwy., Brookville, and is seeking to open a new branch at the location.

CEO Deb DeVous said the credit union intends to tear down the old library branch and construct a new facility.

Property records show Freedom 1st bought the property for $225,000 in a sale recorded Feb. 20 by the Montgomery County Auditor.

Freedom 1st Credit Union’s main office is on Webster Street in Dayton, and the credit union also has two Preble County branches, in Eaton and in Lakengren.

Freedom 1st has about 6,900 members and $37.3 million in assets, according to the National Credit Union Adminstration.
