The Royal Palace was the residence of the Libyan monarch in the capital city Tripoli.

Another residence was the Al-Manar Palace in Benghazi, which was donated by King Idris of Libya as the first campus of the University of Libya. Another residence at Bab Zaytun was further to the east in Tobruk.

It was converted into a public library after the coup d'etat of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

If you think the National Library looks like a palace, you are not far wrong because that's exactly what it used to be. Built in the 1930s, it was the Royal Palace of the last King of Libya, King Idris, until after the revolution when it became the People's Palace.Gaser alshaab
