Programs & Services
The Mission of the Palm Springs Public Library is to provide an enjoyable environment for our local community through service, creativity, and technology innovation.
The library has welcoming spaces in its 12,000 square foot building. The library is a place where members of our community can explore, create and relax. There are over 50,000 physical items, access to numerous eBooks in English and Spanish as well as 24 public computers. The library also offers interlibrary loan, access to the Internet and wireless access and meeting space for community groups. The residents of the Village have access to more than one million items in the libraries of the Library Cooperative of the Palm Beaches through reciprocal borrowing agreements. Other library services include classes and events on a variety of topics for all ages. Our Bilingual Storytime and other programs instill the love of reading, strengthen reading skills, inspire and educate and validate our surrounding community. The library is the heart of the community and provides spaces for a neutral forum and civic education.
Palm Springs Library offers programs for children, teens, and adults. A monthly program calendar is available at the front desk of the Library. Some programs require preregistration, so be sure to sign up to reserve your spot.
