Library Policies

The Newport Beach Public Library is a service-oriented library committed to meeting the needs of the diverse audiences within the community through the Central Library and the Branches. It is a place for reading, researching and studying; meeting friends and relaxing; enjoying cultural arts programs and exhibits, attending lectures and community meetings, and for borrowing Library materials and using Library services.

We ask for your cooperation in maintaining an environment in which all Library customers can use and enjoy the Library's resources, services and facilities. These policies have been developed to assure the comfort and safety of all who use the Library.
