Board of Library Trustees

As Trustees, we are appointed by the Newport Beach City Council to make policy and to oversee the administration of the Newport Beach Library system. We meet once a month to review and resolve short- and long-term issues facing the Library. To that end, we are very interested to hear what Library patrons think about our service, our offerings, and any other issues or suggestions that you may have. So, please feel free to contact us by attending one of our scheduled meetings, or e-mailing us. We hope you continue to enjoy the Library and its many resources.

Sincerely,

The Board of Library Trustees
