Alteration to Library Services
In this time of local and national emergency, it is necessary to rigorously adhere to practices of self-isolation and social distancing. This is not only for the protection of our patrons and our staff but also to lessen the impact on medical services needed to treat the seriously ill.
In accordance with the revised Stay Well at Home Order for Ventura County, the Blanchard Community Library will reopen for Curbside Pickup on Monday, May 18.
Pickup of held items will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., on Saturdays, starting June 27.
