About Central Library
After years of advocacy, fundraising and support by Newport Beach residents, the Central Library was opened on July 10, 1994. The 54,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility was designed by the team of Simon Martin-Vegue Winkelstein Moris, San Francisco, in association with James L. Pirdy, Newport Beach at a cost of $8.5 million. In May 2013, the public celebrated a library expansion of 17,000 square feet which connected the Library to the new Newport Beach Civic Center and Park and added study space, a Cafe and Media Lab, bringing total space in the Central Library to 71,000 square feet.
