The Costa Mesa Library Foundation is holding a fundraiser for a larger library in the city on May 17 at the Wyndham Hotel in Costa Mesa. If you have misplaced your invitation, or for some reason didn't receive one, you can visit http://www.cmlf.eventbrite.com to purchase tickets.
Respond by May 10.
Included in this event is the foundation's 2013-14 Favorite Teacher Award. Four finalists will be competing: Cindy Fernald, Denise McKenzie, Rebecca Millam and Misty Smith. A $1,000 gas card will be raffled off and silent and live auctions promise lots of really great items. For more information, call Barbara Steck at (714) 658-2879.
As you have probably seen in the Daily Pilot, county library personnel, city of Costa Mesa staff and members of the Friends of the Costa Mesa Libraries and Costa Mesa Library Foundation met with an architect several times recently to develop preliminary drawings for the possible conversion of the Neighborhood Community Center building to a library.
