The public spoke and the Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Palm Springs Library (FOPSL) listened. A member of the public had requested new, secure bike racks that fit modern mountain and racing bike styles to be purchased and installed in front of the Library for customers who ride to the Library. This is a request that other users had also requested over the years.
The Board for the Friends of the Palm Springs Library, a non-profit fund-raising and advocacy group, discussed and approved funds at their April meeting, for the purchase of the bike racks from the money they raised for the Library; mainly from book sales. The new racks were purchased and then installed two weeks ago by the City’s Facilities & Maintenance staff.
“We are very happy to have these new modern bike racks” said Barbara Roberts, Director of Library Services. “We thank the Friends for their generous support in making this happen for our users who bike to the Library.”
