The Friends of the Port Hueneme Library is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to financially assist the Ray D. Prueter Library. Funds raised from membership dues, book sales, fundraising events, and donations from individuals and businesses are used to provide more books, services, and programs for the library.
The Friends also maintain a small bookstore in the library foyer where customers can find a variety of books and media at bargain prices. Donations of used books and media in good condition are always welcome and can be deposited in the wooden donation bin in the foyer. Customer payment is on the honor system - checks or cash can be deposited in the locked oak box on top of the wooden donation bin.
For information on becoming a member, programs and events, or making a donation, please call Beverly at 805-488-0363. Membership brochures are also available at the library. History In 1909, the Women's Improvement Club reestablished the Hueneme Library - which was originally founded in the 1880s by Thomas Bard but closed after only a few years - and operated it as a branch of the Oxnard Library. The Hueneme Library joined the Ventura County Library system in 1936.
