Please join us for Collecting Ventura: the Gold Coast Collections, an event showcasing
Ventura County's museums, libraries, and historical societies. Hosted by California
State University Channel Islands (CI), the day brings together teachers, students,
and those interested in the rich cultural heritage of the county with the organizations
that collect, display, interpret and preserve it. The Ronald Reagan Presidential
Library, the E.P. Foster Library of Ventura County Public Libraries, Museum of Ventura
County, and the U.S. Navy SeaBee Archives will all be there along with
a number of other friends.
Building community, celebrating our cultural legacy, and promoting the important institutions that help make our county exceptional are just a few of the reasons to attend Collecting Ventura: the Gold Coast Collections. We hope to see you there!
