What materials can I borrow and for how long?

Your library card is your key to borrowing books, cassettes, compact disks, etc., at any Ventura County Library. Just present your card and library materials to the staff at the circulation desk. (You may only check out books and materials on your own library card.)

  • Circulating books, cassettes, compact discs, pamphlets, and magazines are checked out to you from any Ventura County Library branch for three (3) weeks.
  • Videocassettes can be checked out for three (3) weeks.
  • Reference materials as well as some magazines, newspapers, and government documents, are generally not available to be checked out but can be viewed at the branch.
  • Parents or guardians are financially responsible for items checked out on cards of their children 17 years of age or younger.
