History:

The Avenal Branch started in a cupboard at the home of Mrs. Lillian Evans in 1923. The cupboard is now in the home of Mrs. Evans' daughter, Mrs. Boyd Morris, but the library now fills an entire building. When Avenal became a township, the "library" was moved to a store and post office building on Skyline Blvd. Next it was moved to an upstairs building on "Main Street" (Kings St.) next to Dr. M.O. Wilen's then dentist office. The next time the library moved it was across the alley to another old post office building on Fresno Street (1953). It was there for 28 years. On March 23, 1981, it was moved to the new government building complex at 501 Kings Street. (Extracted from an article in the Coalinga Courier August 28, 1985 by Sharon Miller) The Avenal Branch Library was expanded in the summer of 1989.
