Virtual Programming

We hope you enjoy some virtual workshops or video from some past Library programs and some new content developed just for at-home viewing.  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.

Sunday Musicales 

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.


Take part in a self paced step-by-step workshop about self-publishing your manuscript. NBPL librarian Alex Jenkins begins with a brief overview of self-publishing and its benefits, followed by a walkthrough of the process of uploading and distributing your book in both print and ebook versions.
