History of the Springville Branch Library
On December 15, 1910, an official request for a library deposit station was signed by seven prominent residents of Springville who agreed to comply with the County requirements. The Springville Library Deposit Station was established in March of 1911, in the Springville Hotel. Between 1912 and 1940 the Library moved 5 times. In 1940, the library, which consisted of several shelves of fiction, a few children's books and a dictionary, was moved to Shaw's Variety Store on Main Street. More space was available in the real estate building across the street, and the library moved there from 1947 until 1972. When the former Springville tuberculosis sanitarium on Highway 190 was converted into the Sequoia Dawn senior citizen complex, the community was offered the present building to house the library. It was remodeled in 1992 through the generosity of the Springville Lyons Club. Carolyn Giddings was the branch manager from 1972 until she retired in 1994 and Donna Ellis became the new branch manager.
