  • Friends Of The Library: Sign changes at Park Avenue branch

    "What happened to the big yellow sign?" people ask when they visit the library in Lions Park. "Does that mean you don't do the passport acceptance service anymore?" The passport service is still offered at the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library, 1855...
