The Sylvania Public Library was founded in 1927 and moved to its present location in 1958. In 1970, the Library merged with the Toledo Lucas County Public Library. The branch remodel occurred in 1989-90. The remodel was made possible through the donation of property by Lester Bitner in memory of his wife, Dae.

Sylvania is the busiest of our locations when comparing circulation and reference questions. The King Road Branch Library construction emerged due to the expanding population in Sylvania. More recently, the Sylvania Branch’s 4,090-square-foot expansion introduced new features to the community.
