How We Help

The Thousand Oaks Library Foundation (TOLF) was established in 1983 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to supporting and enhancing special projects and programs in the Thousand Oaks Library System. The largest project supported by TOLF has been the creation and continuation of the Special Collections Department, which includes a local history collection, a book arts collection, and most particularly the American Radio Archives, an extensive collection of Golden Age radio materials and recordings.
