As was decided per City of Simi Valley Ordinance Number 1182, Simi Valley Library has withdrawn from Ventura County Library and will be soon transitioning to a Municipal City Library run by a subcontractor, Library Systems & Services LLC (LSSI). Simi Valley Library will be CLOSED for the transition from June 15 - 30, 2013.
For patrons with Simi Valley as their home library: to keep your Ventura County Library services smooth during this transition, the first step is to change your home location to another Ventura County Library location.
Up through June 14, 2013, you may make this change at Simi Valley Library or any other Ventura County Library location (excluding the Museum of Ventura County's Research Library). If you are not able to make the change during this time, on June 15, 2013, your account will be assigned to Oak Park Library.
Please watch this webpage for further developments. We have enjoyed a long relationship with the City and community of Simi Valley and want to make this transition as smooth as possible for our patrons!
If you’re looking for something unique in your comics, look no further than Leo Geo and his miraculous journey through the center of the earth by Jon Chad. This is not your average graphic novel and its not read in the usual way. Trust me when I say you have to read it to believe it.
It’s the story of Leo, who travels through the center of the earth, and then some, encountering strange creatures and teaching the reader about geology along the way. Now, I’m pretty sure there are no temples built in the inner core of the earth, nor are there any alien beings plotting to come to the surface to attack us (unless, of course, you’re a fan of Doctor Who), but Leo Geo certainly makes it look like a possibility. It’s a fun adventure, and you just might learn a thing or two.
So, if you’re ready for that trip to the center of the earth, Leo Geo is waiting for you.

The Ventura County Library offers Big Library Read May 15th through June 1st. Libraries worldwide spotlight one title for library patrons to read simultaneously, creating a global “library book club”.
The Four Corners of the Sky is master storyteller Michael Malone’s novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others… or a gift we give ourselves?
This program is sponsored by OverDrive and Sourcebooks, Inc. and brought to you by Ventura County Library. Enjoy!
