Penryn Library History

 Leona Leeks, a Penryn resident, convinced Placer County that a library branch was needed in Penryn. She told county authorities that if they would help her she would run the library without pay. Mr. Arthur Flint donated space in his grocery store to house it. Ollie May Hayes helped to run the library. In 1923, Mr. Flint contracted with Mr. Tudsbury to build an addition on the Griffith Building. About a year later, a salary was paid. A short time before 1956, the books were moved to a small corner in what is currently the Post Office. The library shared the nine by ten foot space with an old wooden telephone booth, and the Penryn Telephone Company. In 1963, the Post Office moved to its current location in the Masonic Building, which allowed the library to occupy the whole room on the Southwest corner of the building. The library is housed in a historic California building. The building was remodeled, and after a year of being closed, it reopened on May 7, 1994.
