The Granville Public Library is an association library, meaning it was organized by a group of citizens who filed official Articles of Incorporation with the State of Ohio to establish the library. Despite being officially incorporated in 1912, there has been a public library in Granville (in one form or another) since the early 1800s. Even more GPL history
Bringing life to the approximately 26,000 square foot facility are a healthy collection of materials in a variety of formats, a friendly group of full and part-time staff, a dedicated and generous volunteer workforce, and the tens of thousands of patrons who walk through our doors every year.
