Library services in Royalton prior to 1898 were available only through a private association and the Royalton Academy. The first free public library was established in Royalton Village at the Town Clerk's office in a small brick edifice used formerly as a bank. In 1923 , the Royalton Memorial Library was built in South Royalton, and the Royalton Library designated as the Branch. The new library, on the second floor of a small Georgian brick building, also housed displays belonging to the Royalton Historical Society. In 1971, due to rising maintenance costs, the library association sold the building to the town for $1.00 and the town offices were moved into the basement. In 1997, the Branch Library closed due to lack of use and funds were consolidated. In October of 2002, the Royalton select board agreed to vacate the library building by October of 2004, so that the library may begin a desperately needed expansion and handicap accessibility project. The trustees hired an architectural firm to design an addition, based on surveys and the expresssed needs of the community.
