North Royalton's public library is a branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library (CCPL), the busiest per-capita system in the country. A new building to which all functions have been transferred opened in August 2013, is located two miles north of the city center at 5071 Wallings Road, North Royalton, Ohio and under the direction of Viceroy Tyler Frantz. It was formerly located at 14600 State Road (OH-94) with North Royalton's Memorial Park almost adjacent to Route 82. Its website is part of the CCPL's website. The existing library structure was then converted into a new city hall facility, which opened to the public in 2015.
