Although the VC Library System does not prefer this, you can check out books from one library in the system and return them to another one.
The following local libraries in Ventura County and nearby areas are run by local municipalities and thus are not part of the Ventura County Library System. You can check out books at these other libraries but will need separate library cards at them.
