As was decided per City of Simi Valley Ordinance Number 1182, Simi Valley Library has withdrawn from Ventura County Library and will be soon transitioning to a Municipal City Library run by a subcontractor, Library Systems & Services LLC (LSSI). Simi Valley Library will be CLOSED for the transition from June 15 - 30, 2013.
For patrons with Simi Valley as their home library: to keep your Ventura County Library services smooth during this transition, the first step is to change your home location to another Ventura County Library location.
Up through June 14, 2013, you may make this change at Simi Valley Library or any other Ventura County Library location (excluding the Museum of Ventura County's Research Library). If you are not able to make the change during this time, on June 15, 2013, your account will be assigned to Oak Park Library.
Please watch this webpage for further developments. We have enjoyed a long relationship with the City and community of Simi Valley and want to make this transition as smooth as possible for our patrons!
The Ventura County Library offers Big Library Read May 15th through June 1st. Libraries worldwide spotlight one title for library patrons to read simultaneously, creating a global “library book club”.
The Four Corners of the Sky is master storyteller Michael Malone’s novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others… or a gift we give ourselves?

On a quiet Saturday morning, before the Fillmore Library opens to the public, members of the Artists Guild of Fillmore were waiting at the doors. Their purpose for being there was to mount a new mini-show of art works.
As the Library doors opened, the artists outside were found catching up with each others' news. Carrying one painting apiece, they turned one by one to enter the building. This event occurs four times each year in order to decorate the Library walls. It also gives the public an opportunity to consider owning and hanging an original piece of art in their own home. All the artists live in Fillmore and meet together monthly.
Click here to see a larger image and to be introduced to the artists. The painting's titles, from the top row, left, "Edge of Town - Rothenburg, Germany" by Luanne Hebner Perez; "Walk in Beauty" by Lady Jan Faulkner; "Autumn Afternoon" by Karen Scott Browdy, "Intent" by Joanne King; and the bottom row: "Sheep in Orchard Sun" by Virginia Neuman; "Flora and Fauna" by Lois Freemen Fox; "Santa Inez Oak" by Judy Dressler; and Untitled by Wana Klasen.
