Library service in Oak Park began with a bookmobile stop near the May Boyar Park in 1968. The bookmobile continued to visit until 1981. Oak Park residents lobbied for more library service and in 1979 students mounted a letter writing campaign to get approval for a public library in the community.
In August 1980, the Oak Park School Board and the Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a jointly operated school/community library located on the Oak Park High School campus. In 1981, the new library opened. By 1992, Oak Park’s population had more than doubled and a new, larger library was needed.
Many options were considered, community members were consulted and the architectural firm, Fields & Devereaux was selected to design the new library. Our award-winning library opened in 2004 and the building incorporates many environmental and energy conservation features.

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL
The Ventura County Department of Transportation has conducted a study and provided Oak Park Now with maps of all campuses and the safest routes for students to walk to and from school. We encourage students to walk to school to safely. Elementary children should never walk without an adult and secondary students should never walk alone. Walking to school provides so many benefits to health, for the environment, and for our traffic situation.
