When 90th birthdays come around, people usually stand up and pay attention. Well, the Orange County Public Library is celebrating its 90th birthday on Aug. 1, and a lot of us are paying attention. We invite you to celebrate this event at our three Costa Mesa libraries. There will be special events, including refreshments, to mark the day.
The libraries will honor those who donate money to the Friends of the Costa Mesa Libraries with a special bookplate and a candle on the libraries' birthday cakes. Ask a library staff member for titles that the library would like to add.
The Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library will hold a special Storytime for Preschoolers from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. From noon to 2 p.m., there will be a movie, "Tangled," for children. At 4 p.m., there will be refreshments and live music. And from 6:30 to 8 p.m., the regularly scheduled Book Club will be in session, discussing Jon Krakauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven."
