Palm Springs Library Recognized By The County And State

The State of Florida's Education Commissioner's  Recognition Awards this year included our library for it's outstanding support of education.  This is in addition to the School District of Palm Beach County Partner In Education Program which has recognized Children's Librarian, Mary Helen Sakellarios, for her outstanding efforts.  To see photos of the recognition breakfast held for her at the library visit our Facebook page.

What Is A Hero?

We just observed Memorial Day (honoring those veterans who died for our country) and next is July 4th, the celebration of our nation's birth and all who fought for independence from England.  Nestled between these is Father's Day, first observed in 1908 in Fairmont, West Virginia, but not made a national holiday until 1972.

All of the above holidays have something in common, and coincide with this year's summer reading program theme: Every hero has a story.

A hero is someone who inspires you, who has impacted your life in a positive way either directly or indirectly.  They don't always make headlines and usually just go about their lives in an unassuming way...they care, they give, they sacrifice, and take no credit for doing what is right.

 So, who is your hero?  A parent? A spouse? A friend, a teacher, or a sibling? Maybe Batman, Green Hornet, or Superman?  Let us know who you truly respect and admire for whatever reason.  We have a box at the Circulation desk where you can deposit your "My hero is " form.  All will be displayed at the end of the summer reading program.
