The Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a Lease Agreement for property located at 1050 S. Hill Road in Ventura for the Ventura County Library System to establish a new branch.  The space is just over 5,100 square feet. The county will pay just under $9,500 per month in rent, with 3 percent annual increases called for in the 10-year lease.  The county set aside $200,000 toward the branch for fiscal year 2016-17.  Jackie Griffin, Ventura County Library Director,  said the ongoing funding will be enough for the library to be open 24 hours per week initially, with some weekend, after-school and morning hours.
