The Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library is a non-profit membership organization formed to support the library and its branch through special programs. Money raised by this organization through used book sales and cultural tours is granted back to the library to fund special purchases and programs.

The Thousand Oaks Library Foundation (TOLF), also a non-profit organization, was formed in May 1983. As a library support organization, TOLF funds major special projects and the purchase of extraordinary library materials. The Foundation is responsible for the original grants to the library initiating the popular videocassette rental program; TOLF is the primary donor for the purchase of materials for the American Radio Archives. The Thousand Oaks Library Foundation acts as the recipient for all major contributions to the library.
