About This Location

Conveniently located near restaurants and shopping, the Ontario Branch of MRCPL serves not just locals, but folks from the entire county and beyond. Just two minutes from State Route 30 and 15 minutes from Interstate 71, the branch is a prime, central location to hold meetings or get togethers in one of our two reservable meeting rooms. In addition to offering entertainment and information in house, the Ontario Branch also maintains Little Free Library bookshelves at the Richland Mall and in Ontario’s Marshall Park playground.
