Rising From The Ashes Home Tour – Visions to See & Stories to Tell

We are excited to announce, the long-awaited tour is back on. On Saturday, April 30, 2022, the strength and resilience of Ventura will be in view during a tour of some of the beautifully rebuilt homes. It will be clear the Thomas Fire of 2017 caused devastation, but not defeat.

The homes’ distinctive and unique architecture captures the views from these hills while new landscaping embraces fire mitigation measures. Modern, Mediterranean Ranch and Craftsmanstyle homes will be on display.

This interesting opportunity to visit six recently revamped homes within the Ondulando, Clearpoint, and Horizon ranges of Ventura given a delightful afternoon, showcasing the flexibilityinventiveness, and magnificence of the Ventura hillside residences.

One County, One Book 2021 – Your House Will Pay by Steph Cha

The Ventura County Library Foundation was pleased to sponsor the Ventura County Library One County, One Book community reading program. The book selected was Your House Will Pay, by Steph Cha.

From the official description, Your House Will Pay is “A powerful and taut novel about racial tensions in LA, following two families—one Korean-American, one African-American— grappling with the effects of a decades-old crime.”

Our One County, One Book programming took place during the month of October, culminating with an author talk featuring Steph Cha on Saturday, October 30, 2021.

Thank you to Steph Cha for sharing her insights and to everyone participating.
