    • About

      The Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library is a California-based group of avid library advocates dedicated to enhancing the Thousand Oaks Library with support services and intellectual and cultural programs that enrich the lives of area residents of all ages.

      The role of auxiliary library groups like the Friends has become more critical in light of escalating budgetary constraints, and the library-affiliated needs of a growing community.

      The organization was initially founded as a committee in 1961, and later achieved its IRS non-profit status. It continues to be run exclusively by volunteers, some of whom have been involved for more than twenty years!

      Friends' financial support of the Thousand Oaks Library to date has made possible the acquisition and/or sponsorship of:

      3,600-gallon aquarium in the Grant R. Brimhall Library
      thousands of CD-ROMs and books
      videotapes
      maps
      two computer projection systems
      library internships
      after-school programs
      library staff appreciation gifts and special events
      computer classes
      special programs featuring musicians, musical and dance groups, storytellers and authors
      cultural tours
      and much more!

      The Friends also raised more than $50,000 of the $100,000 shortfall in funds needed to replace books lost in the 1994 earthquake.
