The Royal Oak Public Library will be restoring Tuesday and Thursday morning hours. Starting on September 6, the library will open at 10 AM. Currently the library opens at noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which were reductions made during the recession.

Take a break, sit back, and enjoy live music on the lawn of the Royal Oak Public Library! Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket.
