Things Long Beach Renters Should Know
The first library in Long Beach was established in 1895 and named in honor of Mrs. Garland Ferguson, but was destroyed in the Big Fire of Long Beach on New Year's Eve in 1923. After the disaster, several attempts were made to bring a library to the city, until the current building was opened in 1966.
For years before its incorporation in 1905, Long Beach was a burgeoning community of settlers and pioneers.
Thanks to the character of Long Beach residents past and present, the city bears the title of "The Friendly City."
