Something is overdue at the county library here, and it isn't a book. The main library's reopening, originally scheduled Feb. 13, may be delayed until late March, officials said. Closed Dec. 11 for refurbishing, the Garden Grove Regional Library, 11200 Stanford Ave., remains out of service as workers replace a defective carpet. "Basically, what we had was a flawed carpet," said Georgia M. Weddle, north county regional administrator for the library system.

It is not nearly 3 p.m. yet, but they are beginning to gather. Arriving in ones and twos and threes, they bear bags with the labels of Vons, K mart, Lucky. The attire is informal--bent-billed baseball caps, printed T-shirts, worn shoes. They are the clientele of an unusual and inexpensive dining spot in Garden Grove: the benches of Pioneer Park on Chapman Avenue, just east of Harbor Boulevard.

After residents complained about a program to feed homeless people who gather in Pioneer Park, city officials said they may require the program to be rotated among several sites in Garden Grove.

A town meeting is scheduled for tonight in Garden Grove to allow residents to discuss the proposed sale of the Magnolia Memorial Park, a six-acre public cemetery that was founded in 1874. Some residents and civic groups have expressed concern that the deal, which would mark the first time in California history that a public cemetery has been sold to a private company, might disrupt the sanctity of the park's 1,000 graves.
