June Casagrande Salinger. Twain. Hemingway. Hamburger Helper. If your reading list looks like this, you're probably on your way to the Newport Beach Central Library, where a food drive this year will help needy families have a happy holiday. Bins for "Share Our Selves" are now in front of the central library for donations of canned goods and other nonperishable items that will be distributed to the needy throughout the region. "This is a great opportunity for people who are helping themselves at the library to help others at the same time," said Melissa Adams, spokeswoman for the Newport Beach Library.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- The million-dollar race is on. The city and the school district have kicked into high gear a fund-raising drive to help build a state-of-the-art Mariners Branch Library. The innovative school-public library would replace the existing Mariners Branch and would also serve as the library of nearby Mariners Elementary School. But to capitalize on a rare state-funding opportunity, the city must raise $1 million in donations to qualify for a matching $2 million from state Proposition 14 money.

The opening of school is fast approaching, and students will be doing research papers. Many will probably just use the Internet, grab some "facts" and let that be the total of their effort. I have heard teachers comment about this kind of reporting, and they don't seem to be happy about it. The Internet can be a valuable tool, but anyone with an Internet connection can publish a website. The reliability of the information is not guaranteed. And just because some information is there one day, doesn't guarantee that it will be available in the same place another.

Librarians at the beach? This summer a group of Newport Beach library workers will hit the city sands, and the parks, and even the mall ? anywhere people hang out. The new "library-a-go-go" launches Thursday, and it will have librarians like Genesis Hansen traveling to public places to give out books and hype summer reading. "We're basically going to go anywhere large groups of people gather in the summer," said Hansen, a reference librarian at the Newport Beach Public Library.

COSTA MESA ? Like many teenagers, Ivan Hernandez wants to buy a car someday. On Sunday, he went to get a wallet-size laminated card that may help. It's not a driver's license or a credit card. Hernandez, 16, is a Mexican citizen, so he applied to his country's consulate for a matricula consular, a photo ID card much like a U.S. state ID. To get the card, applicants must show legal documents such as birth certificates or passports, and they give their fingerprints and signature.

Did you know that in Shakespeare's time, people would ask each other if they'd like to go across the Thames to "hear" a play? In our television- and video-saturated age, we seem to be a culture that has virtually gone deaf. The beauty and magic of words is hard to come by in this fast-paced, on-the-go time we live in. Many people are finding it difficult to take the time to sit down and read an entire book. The Audio Publishers Assn. has chosen the month of June as the time to bring more awareness to that already hot craze -- the audio book (or recorded book or book on tape or, nowadays, book on CD.)
