Through generous donations, The Newport Beach Public Library Foundation provides vital funding that keeps the Newport Beach Public Library modern by enabling and inspiring lifelong learning, advancing knowledge, and strengthening our community. Over the past decade, the Foundation has contributed more than $7 million dollars to fund programs, technology, and services for the 1.2 million annual users of the four library branches. From the Witte Lectures and Library Live series, to writing, health, and financial workshops, to book groups and more, the NBPLF provides valuable library programs, services, and resources.
The Foundation's Witte and Library Live lecture series are live and in-person in the Friends Room of the Central Library. The Book Discussion Group just resumed live discussions. The financial and health workshops are still virtual. The Foundation follows State of California and City of Newport Beach requirements. However, we recommend masks for all events.
