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, Spanish Revival and Craftsman-style homes will be on display along with décor from some of the area’s finest interior designers.

This unique opportunity to tour newly rebuilt homes in the Ondulando, Clearpoint, and Skyline areas of Ventura promises to be a delightful afternoon that will showcase resilience, creativity and beauty of the Ventura hillside residences. The event will include local musicians, refreshments, and contact information for a variety of professional contractors, craftsmen, builders, etc. This is a never before opportunity to tour spectacular homes.

It is only through the continued support of our many community partners that the Ventura County Library Foundation can raise funds to expand and enhance the work of Ventura County Libraries. Your generous donation will enable us to fund important literacy programs, the Mobile Library, broader access to the internet and computers to close the digital divide, homework tutoring, STEAM initiatives, and much more.

Past Events

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.
