library history

South Whittier Library was founded in 1915. The library's first location was in a one-room schoolhouse. South Whittier's first separate built-as-a-library building was dedicated on April 16, 1956.

After 16 years at that location on Laurel Avenue, the library moved to its present location at 14433 Leffingwell Road.

The library closed for renovations in January 1988. Interim service to the community was provided by an outreach van from January to October 1988, when the remodeled and expanded facility opened for service.
