History of the Dinuba Branch Library

Soon after the Tulare County Library System was formed in July of 1910, in September of the same year the Dinuba Women's Club filed a petition to have a County Library deposit station (a spot where patrons could pick up and deposit books) set up in Dinuba. The petition was granted and the first deposit station was set up in a corner of the Dopkins Furniture. A year later more room was required, and the branch was moved to the Snell Building on Tulare Street. The first librarian, Miss Etta Pillsbury, was appointed. Sometime in 1912 the branch moved to the (then) new Chamber of Commerce building. A new Carnegie Library was built in 1916 on land the city donated using Carnegie Foundation funds. The Chamber of Commerce building burned down and all of its contents were lost in July, 1916. The new Carnegie Library opened, informally, four days later. This library was demolished in 1975 when the present day library branch was built. Dinuba was designated branch #1 in 1910, and still holds that distinction today.
