Think Summer Reading Program is just for kids? Think again! The Summer Reading Program at the Palm Springs Public Library has something for everyone, including a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet courtesy of the Friends of the Palm Springs Library! Adults play Book Bingo for an extra entry into the Grand Prize drawing. We are giving away THREE Samsung Galaxy Tablets, one for children, one for teens, and one for adults. We are also giving away a weekly prize bag for adults who attend our adult-focused programs. Adults can enjoy Animal-Themed Movies on Tuesday afternoons. This week’s movie is “War Horse” and starts at 2:00 p.m., June 24 in The Learning Center. We have a different movie each week. We are also excited to have pet training expert, Kate Abbott, Tuesday, July 15 at 6:30 p.m. to teach us Pet First-Aid and CPR Basics. No pets may attend but eager pet owners are encouraged to attend.
Of course we still have programs for children and teens. Upcoming programs for children include SWAZZLE puppet show, “B.A.R.K. the Robot Dog,” Wednesday, June 25 at 3:30 p.m., Story Time, Thursdays at 10:00 a.m., Bilingual Story Time, Thursdays at 3:30 p.m., and Paws and Hearts Read to Dogs program Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Teens can enjoy a Cartoon Draw Shop, Thursday, June 26 at 3:30 p.m. Check our website for a full listing of programs and activities.

During the month of July, we are accepting school supply donations for James O. Jessie Desert Highland Unity Center. Their greatest need is backpacks and 3-ring binders but all school supplies are needed. Come to the Library, sign up for Summer Reading Program, and give to our local organizations! PAWS to READ!
