The Palm Springs Public Library was presented with a check today for $25,000.00 from the Friends of the Palm Springs Public Library (FOPSL). The check was presented to the Director of Library Services, Barbara Roberts, from the FOPSL Board President, Vaughn Simon.
The FOPSL group, also known as the Friends, is a non-profit organization composed of local enthusiastic library supporters who promote an informed interest in the Library and encourage and administer dues, gifts and bequests to the Library. They sponsor a monthly book club and several fund raising programs and service events, including their annual book sale, to help raise money to help support the Library.
“This gift comes at a time when it is extremely needed, said Barbara Roberts, Director of Library Services, “we cannot thank the Friends enough for their continued generosity and support. This particular donation will be used completely for the purchase of new materials for all ages in all formats.”
