  • Friends of the Libraries: Library closing put off for 3 months

    I have mentioned before that the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library needs to have its roof repaired. The closing time for the library was to have been Nov. 18, but due to contract complications, the date has been pushed back three months. Presumably that...
  • Friends of the Libraries: Master plan for libraries is important

    Money that was earmarked for a master plan for Costa Mesa's Library Services has instead been used to supplement Orange County funds for repairing the roof of the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library. When money is tight, I can understand this. However,...

    Reporter's Notebook: A domino star is born
    If you know me, it's likely not for my level of dexterity. Rewind to Wednesday, when I was tasked with stacking dominoes and Jenga tiles — fast. The white 80-by-120-foot Fun Zone tent, which houses an assortment of games and a stage, was a...

  • Friends of the Libraries: Support 'the heart of a city'

    "A library should be the heart of a city." Steven S. Choi, mayor of Irvine, said this in his Jan. 29 article in the Orange County Register. This is a theme that has been repeated many times by those who know the benefits of libraries, who know that even...
