All in person programming is cancelled until further notice. Starting Tuesday, January 4 service hours at Mariners will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays. Central will maintain current hours. Balboa and CdM will be closed from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. daily.
While some of our in-library programs are on hold (outdoor storytimes are happening now), 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.
