About the Oakhurst Branch Library

In 1911, after the state of California passed a law requiring counties to establish free libraries, a library branch was opened in what was then called Fresno Flats…which became “Oakhurst” in 1912.

A library card holder can check out a book at any one of these locations and return it to any other location within the SJVLS. A library patron can request books from other libraries within the system and it will be sent to the library of their choice.
