The Orosi Branch Library, also known as the Orosi/Cutler Branch Library, is a Carnegie library located at 12662 Ave. 416 in Orosi, California. The library was built in 1921 with a $3000 grant from the Carnegie Foundation; while the foundation had issued the grant in 1917, construction was held up for four years by World War I. The wood frame library is a California bungalow, a plain style following James Bertram's suggestions for Carnegie Library design; it is one of the few wood frame Carnegie libraries constructed. The library is still in use; it is one of two remaining Carnegie libraries in Tulare County, along with the Exeter Public Library.[2]

The Orosi Branch Library was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 25, 1983.[1]
