Visit your local library

While the Ventura College Library is closed until the 17th, your local library is open for business. Here is a little peak at the action going down at some of the local libraries:

  • The Ventura County Library is open, but there will be some changes at the Simi Valley branch, with its decision to change its management. The E.P. Foster branch, which is located in downtown Ventura, will be having free music every second Sunday of the month. Many of the other local libraries are part of the Ventura County Library system; just check the “Locations” drop-down menu for a list of locations and addresses.
  • The Oxnard Public Library is having summer reading programs for teens as well as adults. You can win prizes for reading books!
  • The Blanchard Community Library in Santa Paula allows you to learn another language using the Mango software. Check it out!
  • The Camarillo Public Library is having free movie nights on Thursdays.

Have fun!
