About Greenfield Branch

Greenfield has its humble beginnings in a tent city known as “Three Mile Flat”. The town grew up around the land purchased (the Joaquin de la Torre land grant) and resold by John S. Clark. Almost 300 families united to jointly purchase a large chunk of the former Rancho Arroyo Seco and thus the town of Greenfield was established. Greenfield was incorporated in 1947.

Greenfield Library was the first Monterey County Library. It was established on January 8, 1914 in the house of Mrs. Ida M. Clark. The New Greenfield Library had its Grand Opening on April 10, 1994 in its present location. The 7100 square foot building has murals painted by local artist, Cindy Davis, which depict the town of Greenfield. There is a full-wall quilt made by the Greenfield Quilters also depicting the history of Greenfield. There is a large children’s room, as well as a meeting room, and a technology area that serves this very busy library. The Greenfield Library was the first county library and also became the first County owned library.
