Other items of note:

  • The Thousand Oaks Library is not part of the Ventura County Library System (it was part of the system prior to November 1982) and thus your library card can only be used for books at these two libraries.
  • The Grant Brimhall Library is 84,000 sq ft and the Newbury Park Branch is 17,000 sq ft.
