Three days remain to take advantage of an amnesty for overdue books offered by the Orange County Public Libraries, including the three branches in Costa Mesa. Through Sunday, OCPL branches will offer borrowers a chance to clear their accounts by waiving fines for all late books and materials.
With the start of the new school year, students will need to use library materials for reading and homework assignments. Returning overdue books on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will ensure that they are able to check out more library materials. All 34 OCPL branches are participating in this program.
The Friends of the Library Book Club will discuss "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand" by Helen Simonson at 6:30 p.m. Monday, at the Mesa Verde Library, 2969 Mesa Verde Drive. In addition, Preschool Storytime will be at 11 a.m. Sept. 27, and Pajama Storytime will meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 28.
