Ventura County Public Library

COVID NOTE: All 12 libraries are still closed to the public but we are open for holds pickup. Here is their page about that: https://www.vencolibrary.org/walk-holds-pick-during-closure. There is also a video on the page that briefly explains the current services.

In order to do this, you of course need a library card. They can issue cards over the phone.

We also are doing a Fall Reading Challenge to keep kids and teens reading over the Fall. To get to this program you can go here: http://vclreads.readsquared.com/. We will have a Winter program as well.

If your students would rather use a digital format, our main source for eBooks and eAudiobooks during this time is CloudLibrary. Also, to help your students with their homework, we have subscribed to Help Now – brainfuse. Help Now –brainfuse allows for your students to Interact with live tutors in math, science, reading/writing, social studies, PSAT/SAT, ACT, AP and state standardized tests.
