Library Services During Renovation


Important Notice: The Royalton Memorial Library will be closed to the public for the months of November and December. Due to safety concerns, and the logistics of moving books and equipment, the library will remain closed until the renovation is completed.

The Board of Trustees and the library staff apologize for the inconvenience and we thank the community of patrons, volunteers, donors, and agencies who all worked so hard to make this possible. We ask for your patience and understanding as we enter the final phase of the much needed renovation.

We’re almost there! Stay tuned for the Grand Opening!
