As one of the top-ranked libraries in California and one of America’s Star Libraries, the Newport Beach Public Library plays an important role as the cultural, educational and informational heart of the City of Newport Beach. The Central Library and the three branch libraries, Mariners, Balboa, and Corona del Mar, are active centers for information discovery, recreational entertainment, and the celebration of knowledge.  

The Board of Library Trustees is committed to meeting the needs of the diverse audiences within the community through the Central Library and the Branches. NBPL library cards are available free to any California resident showing proper identification.  Out-of-state residents can obtain a NBPL library card for $10.
