Paid for by your tax dollars (yes, it's socialism at work) public libraries cannot be understated as a source of knowledge. They are not just a respository for books and magazines; they typically offer recordings on other media like CDs and DVDs, and play host to to things like community events, after-school activities and career assistance. This is also usually the place to go for local history.

The Ventura County Library System has 15 libraries. The city of Oxnard has three libraries, offering—among other things—computer classes, study rooms, and passport services.
