Friends of the Libraries: Enjoy Dungan before it's (temporarily) gone

March 21, 2013|By Mary Ellen Goddard

The next book sale at the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

There will be books of all sorts appealing to all ages and interests — fiction and nonfiction, biography, cookbooks and more — in hardback and paperback. Prices are up to $1 each on Saturday. On Sunday, books are a buck a bag, meaning you can fill the bag provided and pay just $1. The sale will be held in the Community Room at the library, 1855 Park Ave., Costa Mesa.

At the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library

Yes, the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library will close April 1 for repair work, but until then, it will be offering its usual great services. On Monday, toddler storytime will feature the children's librarian reading stories, singing songs and teaching a craft. Some playtime is also included. Children and their families are welcome. The next day at 6:30 p.m., the Mystery Book Club will discuss "Lavender Lies," by Susan Wittig Albert. Then at 2 p.m. Thursday, bilingual storytime, conducted in both English and Spanish, will include songs, stories and crafts. This program is for preschoolers and elementary school-age children. Children and their caregivers are encouraged to attend.

I will remind you again that passport service is provided at the Dungan Library. If you have been considering applying for a passport, or renewing one, do it before the library closes. Call the library at (949) 646-8845 to make sure you have the needed paperwork and identification. Passport service is available from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (by appointment). During those same hours, you can get passport photos at the library.

The library is scheduled to reopen in July.
