WESTMINSTER : Long Beach Resident Named as Librarian

The local branch of the Orange County Public Library has a new senior librarian. Mary Ann Hutton was appointed in June to replace Su Chung, who has moved to the Garden Grove regional library.

County Librarian John Adams has appointed three other branch administrators, including Paula Bruce, who took over Hutton’s former job as head of the Mission Viejo branch. Cheryl Weinberg was named administrative librarian in La Palma, and Elke Faraci will head the Stanton branch.

There are 27 branches in the county public library system.

Hutton, a resident of Long Beach, holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Cal State Long Beach and a master’s degree in library science from USC. She was a librarian at Paramount Television Studios and the Huntington Beach Public Library.


The Westminster branch, at 8180 13th St., was opened in 1977. It has a Vietnamese-language collection and a children’s library.

The branch is open from noon to 8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
