Small Group Meeting Space
The Newport Beach Public Library recently opened the Charles Sword Room, located on the upper level of the Central Library, for small group meetings.
The room was refurbished, with donations from the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation, to facilitate groups of 6-10 for book discussions, presentations, committee meetings or study groups.
According to Library Services Manager, Tim Hetherton, “We receive frequent requests from community members for a meeting place so we are pleased that we now have a space designated for that purpose.”
The meeting room can be reserved for use during library hours for a maximum of four hours, up to four weeks in advance. There is no charge to reserve the room but customers must have a valid Newport Beach Public Library (NBPL) library card on file before using the room.
To reserve the room, interested parties should contact the Library Administration office at (949) 717-3801 during office hours, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Complete details and room policies are available on the website www.newportbeachlibrary.org under Services/Study/Meeting Rooms.
