Some libraries on the South Coast are the latest public buildings to close amid the coronavirus surge.

It’s now all too familiar.

Ventura County Library Branches and the Mobile Library closed indoor facilities on Wednesday, as coronavirus case numbers rise again in the region.

The locations will continue to provide curbside/walk up holds pickup to provide access to library materials including Computer Kits with internet access.

Online programs will continue to be available including a robust collection of e-books, databases, and virtual services such as live homework assistance, chat reference services, and more.

WiFi will be available outside library facilities during normal hours of operation.

Select library programs may continue in-person if they are held outside and with safety protocols in place.

At this time, there will be no change to hours of operation at the library facilities. We may have to make adjustments moving forward.

"The safety of our staff and customers remain the utmost priority," said Nancy Schram, Library Director at Ventura County Library.
