Ovitt Family Community Library

215 East C Street, Ontario, CA 91764, United States | (909) 395-2004

On November 15, 1885, a handful of settlers gathered in the parlor of the Ontario Hotel to discuss their need for a library. This informal meeting has been regarded as the founding of Ontario City Library. The City department was established in 1891 and has grown to two facilities with over 185,000 materials including books, magazine subscriptions, newspaper subscriptions, documentaries, feature films and more. The library also offers educational and recreational programs and services for community members of all ages and features the Robert E. Ellingwood Model Colony History Room, on the lower level of the Ovitt Family Community Library, contains resources covering the history of Ontario and the western region of San Bernardino County.

Ontario City Library locations include:

Colony High Branch Library located on the campus of Colony High School at 3850 East Riverside Drive, Ontario, CA 91761

Ovitt Family Community Library located at 215 East C Street, Ontario, CA 91764
