To further promote the love of reading — a chief tenet of the librarian code — in all age groups, the Newport Beach Public Library is hosting a full week of free programming in observance of National Library Week, Sunday through April 14, at branches throughout the city. "The goal for any of our programs is to bring people into our branches and make them aware of what we have to offer," Youth Services Manger Debbie Walker said.

Newport Beach Mayor Nancy Gardner read to a group of about 20 toddlers, preschoolers and babies Wednesday morning at the Corona del Mar library branch as part of a celebration of National Library Week. She discussed favorite animals and the importance of wearing rain boots before jumping in mud puddles with the children, who called out answers and appeared entirely engaged in the conversation.

There is a lot going on in our three Costa Mesa libraries. People are checking out books, students are doing homework, people of all ages are doing research for projects, and there are people working on English as a second language. There are programs for children and for adults, librarians are answering reference questions, helping people find books and other information. At the Dungan Library, there are groups meeting in the community room as well as others getting passport photos and applying for passports.
