Galion Public Library was founded in 1901. Since that time our collection has grown to around 100,000 items.
Initially the library was housed in a small log cabin (pictured), which is now located in Heise Park.
The current library building (pictured at right) was built in 1904, partly with Carnegie funds, and later expanded in 1991 to create room for an ever-growing collection of materials and services.

Loan periods are two weeks for printed and audio materials with a fine of five cents per day. Videos circulate for seven days (three days for new releases), with a one dollar late fee per day. Use the catalog to see what items the library has available.
Besides a dedicated professional staff, the Galion Public Library is also blessed with an active Friends of the Library group. The friends hold seasonal bake sales and bazaars, as well as managing the library's running book sale. The funds raised by the Friends are used to better the services provided by the library.
The library is governed by an independent board.
