The Friends of the Palm Springs Library are determined to stay in touch with our members and provide some interesting updates and events. Our very exciting news is that we will be updating and managing our Friends' Facebook page in the coming weeks. Our goal is to keep in close contact with our members through this social media site so please "Like Us" and stay in touch with us.


The Friends exist to help Palm Springs Public Library staff provide world-class service to the community. Membership in the Friends tangibly assists our improvement efforts.


Hot off the Press is the Library’s collection of current popular and bestselling books. Because these titles often have long waiting lists due to their popularity, the Friends provides funding to purchase multiple copies.  

You can access this collection both in hard copy format by calling the Library at 760-322 READ (7323) or by downloading a digital copy. 

Thank you to our Friends members in helping to make the HOT OFF THE PRESS program possible.

Thank you to all of our Friends of the Palm Springs Library!

Thank you for your patience.

We appreciate your continued support of our library. Thanks a million.


    As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, the Library's budget was dramatically reduced. Through your generosity The Friends of the Palm Springs Library has been able to provide significant financial assistance to maintain several very important programs such as:

    • New books for our patrons to enjoy
    • Summer Reading for students and adults.
    • Career on-line high school graduation
    • Maintenance of the fish pond
    • New equipment and supplies for the Library's Virtual Program

    The Friends of the Palm Springs Library thank you for your continued support and generosity.

    I got my first audiobook from the library, and boy was I impressed. I chose the book Beloved, narrated by Toni Morrison herself. Her voice is so calm and she transports you to post Civil War life with freed slaves. An amazing book made even better by her narration. Highly recommended by Kathy Weyer.

    Yes, we are in the midst of  a devastating pandemic in our community. Our library continues to provide services in spite of budget cuts that reduced staff and programs.

    We hope we can count on you with a helpful donation to ensure continued library services. 

    Thank you and stay safe!
