City of Thousand Oaks, Page 4 of 4
Entertainment and Education
We originally liked the idea that we were not too far
from L.A., so that we could drive into the big city to
see a concert or a play. But Thousand Oaks recently built
a great Civic Arts Plaza, which is the largest facility
between L.A. and San Fransisco. Now big-name
entertainment and Broadway shows come right to us! To see
what's happening now, check out the Civic
Arts Plaza web site.
And on the more casual side, the city hosts a series
of 'concerts in the park' each summer.
The city library is terrific. It ranks as one of the
largest and busiest in the nation. In addition to a
collection of 400,000 books, it offers 7,000
videocassettes, 2,500 compact discs, 8,500 books-on-tape,
subscriptions to 960 magazines and 27 newspapers. They also offer access
to computers, scanners, printers, internet access, and
software CD-ROMs for check-out.
You can use your PC to log onto the
library computer system and search the library database to
see if a book is in stock before going to the library.

Hope you enjoyed this little tour of our little town!
