History of the Orosi Branch Library

The Orosi Library was established in March 1911 in Ryan's Cyclery. It was officially established as a Tulare County Library Branch in July, 1913. In 1917, the County obtained a $3000 Carnegie grant to build a $5,000 Carnegie library in Orosi. The Woman's Improvement Club of Orosi raised $2000, purchased lots and arranged for lumber and labor to be donated for sidewalks. Construction was delayed until after the war (World War I). The library was the last Carnegie library to be completed in California and is only one of three of the Craftsman style remaining. It has 2 fireplaces and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. It is the only Carnegie library still in use as a library in Tulare County. The city of Cutler had a small branch which moved from place to place, including stores. In 1978, it joined with the Orosi Branch and it then became the Orosi/Cutler Branch of the Tulare County Library System.
