The Palm Springs Public Library is excited to announce that once again the Library has been awarded a grant from Target®, this year in the amount of $2380.00. This grant money will be used to support several youth programs.
The grant will enable the Library’s youth department to buy books for its ‘Babies 1st Book’ for new parents, and the ‘Grab ‘n Go’ book bag program, enabling busy parents to check out themed bags of books and activities quickly and easily to accommodate their busy schedules. The monies will also enable the Library’s youth staff to purchase needed supplies and to support the very successful Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros—Day of the Child/Day of the Book annual celebration.
“We are excited and honored to be awarded a grant from Target once again”, said Barbara Roberts, Library Services Director, “this gift couldn’t have come at a better time, providing us a means to continue and even extend our youth programs.”
This grant is part of ongoing efforts by Target to strengthen families and communities throughout the country. “At Target, our local grants are making a difference in the communities we serve,” said Laysha Ward, president, Community Relations, Target. “We’re proud to partner with the Palm Springs Public Library as part of our ongoing commitment to give back to the communities where our guests and team members live and work.”
