Ladera Ranch Library

OC Public Libraries: Ladera Ranch Branch
29551 Sienna Parkway
Ladera Ranch, CA 92694

I must say that Ladera Ranch is a beautiful city. The directions getting to the library are a little confusing, and I made a wrong turn because I have not really encountered traffic circles (roundabouts) in my everyday adventures.

The library is located next to an elementary school so I would not recommend going there around 2:30pm, when school gets out. It took me a while to get out to the main street.

The library itself is small and located on the upstairs level of a Greek-style building. It had a nice selection of GRE prep books.

Spinner’s Turkish Kebab

16076 Harbor Boulevard,
Fountain Valley, CA 92708

HALAL seal

Our community has been blessed with many Turkish restaurants in the past couple of years. There have been three that I know, which have opened up in the past three years, only a couple of miles away from each other.

I think the atmosphere of this restaurant was definitely friendly. There was much activity because there were three little girls, all around 3 years old, running around. I found out that the restaurant was opened up by three brothers and each one had a daughter.


I ordered Beef Doner Kebab- thin slices of seasoned beef that are cooked on a flame broiler. The taste was quite different than what I’ve eaten before and I really enjoyed it. I wish the portion size was a little bigger, but I think I am just a big-eater. The dish was served with rice, bread, hummus, and salad on the side. The service was prompt and owners were friendly.


Food: 4/5

Service: 4/5

Overall: 4/5

Laguna Niguel Library

OC Public Libraries: Laguna Niguel Branch

Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

The area was really nice. I loved the city of Laguna Niguel.



The library was small and there was not much action, but I did find a lot of GRE Prep books=)
