San Manuel Library

The San Manuel Library was started by local women in 1954 when the town was only one year old. They took donations from residents, organized the books, and began a lending library. The books were housed in different buildings until Magma Copper Company donated a company house which they remodeled at company cost into the present library building. The copper companies, first Magma and now BHP, have been very supportive of the public library. The library is totally operated by volunteers from the community.
