Jumpstart Reading Day

On Sept. 20th the Palm Springs Library participated in the ‘Read For the Record’ Jumpstart Reading Day by having employees of the Hyatt Hotels and Resorts come in to the Library and read during story time.

This event was part of a nationwide effort to break the record for the largest shared reading experience ever, which was set by 150,000 people on August 24, 2006 during the inaugural year of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign.

Hundreds of thousands of children and adults from across the country read the same book, The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf.
