Ventura County Library invites you to share your family or personal experiences and learn the basics of Digital Storytelling.
This free, two-day workshop on June 5th and 6th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. is part of California Listens, a program sponsored by the California State Library and led by StoryCenter.
In this workshop, you will create a 2 to 4-minute video using your personal and family images, videos and archival material. Learn how to tell a great story, write and record a narration script, and the basics of video editing. The video you create will become part of a statewide archive of stories about life in California!
We are seeking stories that reflect the full spectrum of life around Main St. Ventura. Long-time residents, newcomers, surfers, environmentalists, artists, community activists, business owners, oil industry employees and their families – we want to hear from you!

The Friends of the Library are now raising funds to meet the immediate needs for the opening of the new Hill Road library branch.
Donations can be made at https://squareup.com/store/VenturaFOL
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.
