Even in the days before the Internet, Adell Manell used to tell parents that a set of encyclopedias was the worst investment they could make for their children. Too expensive and so much of the information quickly became outdated.

Reference materials in a public library, however, stayed current. And they were free.

Her point of view wasn't an entirely unbiased one. Adell was a librarian for 40 years. She worked at the library on the Newport Beach peninsula, then opened Mariner's Library in Newport Heights.

Adell Manell

Born: Sept. 24, 1911, Kansas City, Mo.
Died: Feb. 26, 2006, Newport Beach
Survivors: Son, Harrison; daughter, Sharon Talluto; grandchildren, James "Tony" and Julie Talluto, Kim and Scott Manell; great-grandchildren, Joshua and Jacob Cleeland
Services: 11:15 a.m. Friday, Pacific View Memorial Park, Newport Beach

Adell taught hundreds of schoolchildren how to do research for school papers and encouraged them to treasure their library cards as if they were precious jewels, which, in her eyes, they were.

She was 94 when she died of breast cancer at home in Newport Beach on Feb. 26.

Her family moved from Kansas City, Mo., to Southern California when Adell was a child, and she graduated from Hollywood High School. An early love of books prompted her to seek a career as a librarian. She attended UCLA, the University of Kansas and UC Berkeley to earn a master's degree in library science.

In 1939, she married Cecil Manell, a purchasing agent. Before moving to Newport Beach in 1956, Adell worked at the UCLA library.

Adell loved her work. Books were, in her mind, at least, the foundation of learning, enlightenment and comfort.

She knew the Dewey decimal system inside-out and had saved a box of the old catalog cards old-timers once had to thumb through to find a book. Adell used them for scratch paper.

Books were to be revered, she believed, and she made certain her patrons, young and old, understood that.

There would be noturning down of page corners to mark one's place or breaking of book spines to make them lie flat.

And everything would be done just so in her detail-oriented world. She once overheard one library page joke to another that Adell was such a perfectionist, she could detect an upside-down period.

At the same time, Adell bent over backward to teach research skills to students and help them find what they needed.

All students, that is, except her own two children. She believed theyshould learn to do their own research.

Adell had high standards for them. All A's in school, for starters, plus responsibility, honesty and loyalty.

A longtime volunteer with the League of Women Voters, her home was used as a polling place, and she was the one voters could call with questions about candidates and issues.

Outgoing and incredibly smart (some say she had a photographic memory), she enjoyed that contact with the public and rarely fielded a question she couldn't answer. It seemed as though her mind didn't let go of a single fact or detail.

Even in her 90s, her mind was quick as a whip, and she took to using a computer with the ease of a teenager.

E-mail, Google and the card game Free Cell delighted her, and she spent hours at the keyboard.

"On the Internet," she said, "there is wisdom. You can search for anything you want to know."

Before his death in 1987, Cecil controlled the family purse strings and quickly banked Adell's paychecks, doling out only $25 a month to her for spending money. It rankled her at the time.

But in retirement, she reaped the rewards of that frugal lifestyle. She and Cecil traveled around the world, and she later treated family and friends to many cruises.

Wherever she went, she insisted on finding and touring the local library.

Known for her positive attitude toward life, Adell held on to that inner strength throughout her illness. No one heard her complain of pain, and most friends didn't even know she had cancer.

"You can learn from everything," she said. "People say, 'Why does this have to happen?' I say, Why not?"
