Thousand Oaks is proud to have a City-owned library system funded by an assessment from homeowners. The Thousand Oaks Library is comprised of one main facility in Thousand Oaks and a branch library in Newbury Park. The Library collection includes over 350,000 items and friendly staff to provide assistance.
Grant R. Brimhall Library
The Thousand Oaks Library was opened in 1982. The 62,000 square foot building was expanded an additional 22,000 square feet to accommodate an improved Children's Services area, quiet study rooms, and additional seating and shelving capacity in 2006. A new 3,600 gallon salt-water aquarium donated by the Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library enhances the walkway between the adult and children's services areas.
Newbury Park Branch Library
Opened in 1991, the Newbury Park facility houses both the Newbury Park Branch Library and the Library System's Technical Services Department. The building also houses the Thousand Oaks Community Gallery, where local artists can showcase their work.
