Hunt Branch Library
Save the Hunt is a group of Fullerton residents dedicated to keeping the historic Hunt Branch Library in the public realm for community use rather than allowing this historic asset to be sold to a private concern. Gifted to the City of Fullerton by industrialist and art collector Norton Simon, who once displayed Rodins, Rembrandts, and Picassos in or around the building, the Hunt served as a branch of the Fullerton Public Library from 1962 to 2013, when the Fullerton City Council chose to defund it and lease it to a neighboring property owner. Our efforts have helped to keep the significant mid-century modern facility designed by world-famous architect William Pereira from being sold as a surplus property by the City of Fullerton. The City has chosen a partnership of Heritage/Future and ArtsOC to develop and provide programming at the Hunt.
