About Exeter

In March 1909, the Exeter

Women's Club set up a deposit

station (a place where people

could borrow and return state books) in the H. Miles & Co. Store. Then, when the Tulare County Library System was formed in 1910, the Woman's Club petitioned to become one of the first county stations. Exeter became County Deposit Station #2 in November of 1910. The following year the station was moved to a vacant building until October 1916 when a $5000 Carnegie Library building opened. It served as Exeter's Library until the building of the present branch in 1975. The old historic Carnegie building at 309 South E Street still stands and is currently used as a community center. Following a plumbing issue, the Exeter Libary was renovated and opened in 2017.
