Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System
Just like the song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” we can definitely count on our Friends. We are extremely grateful for the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System. The Friends support the Library by sponsoring events, providing financial assistance for special projects, advocating for library needs and in developing and expanding Library services and facilities when not provided for in the Library’s budget. Visit their website for more information.
As of Oct 01, we’re fine free! No more fines on late materials. Just bring materials back by the due date. Our mission is to provide open access to information and materials and we’re thankful that through fine forgiveness we’ll be able to do just that!
We offer a 21-day loan period for all materials on library shelves. Those items will automatically renew up to three times if there are no holds. Members who receive texts and email notices will be notified when the item is renewed. This means more reading time and convenience for you!
We can’t forget to be thankful for all of the materials we are able to offer our members. From books to Wi-Fi hotspots and birding backpacks, we are grateful to be able to provide these items to you for free.
Hurricane Season is Almost Over!
Although life in sunny South Florida can be great, with seemingly endless summers, we sometimes have to tackle things like hurricanes. This year, another thing we’re thankful for is that the hurricane season is almost over!
50 Years of Serving Palm Beach County
50 years is definitely a birthday worth celebrating. In September 1969, the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners approved the operation of a free library service in the County. Since then, we have been proud to serve the vibrant and diverse community of Palm Beach County.
