While our in-library programs are on hold, we hope you enjoy some recent Library programs.  Sunday Musicales, Author Lectures and Medicine in Our Backyard programs can be enjoyed at home any time. We also have stories and games to entertain and educate young children. We will be adding more virtual programming content, so check back periodically to see what else the Newport Beach Public Library has to offer.
