Library History:

The Camarillo Public Library first started in 1895 as a small collection of readers in the local school, by 1919 the Camarillo branch of the Ventura County Free Library was officially opened. The library's collection continued to grow and in 2007 a new building was constructed for the library. The architectural style of the building and interior is partially inspired by the Adamson House in Malibu. The children's room features a sunken pirate ship and beautiful mosaics can be found throughout the building. In January 2011, the library was officially re-opened as the City of Camarillo Public Library.
