Inyo County Free Library

Inyo County is the home of Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the lower 48 states and Death Valley National Park, the lowest point in the United States. The Los Angeles aqueduct runs through the valley and transports water to the City of Los Angeles. The Inyo County Free Library was formed in 1913, serves a population of about 18,000, and has six branches. Inyo County stretches over 10,000 square miles. It is 240 miles and a 6 hour drive from the City of Bishop to the most southern branch in Tecopa. The Library has a rich collection of local history materials at the Central Library in Independence, the county seat.
