All books are available to be checked out at the library and many of the books are available as an eBook or downloadable audiobook and can be downloaded from the Library’s website.
Crave is a new dessert bar that opened in downtown Palm Springs in April 2012. Their focus is to have a place where people can decompress from their day
and connect; with each other and the community. These connections are the heart of Crave’s unique experience and that focus made it the perfect location for the Wine Book Club.
Crave is open Wednesday through Sunday evenings for dessert and on Saturday and Sunday mornings for coffee and fresh baked croissants and scones. To find out more about their hours, menu offerings and special events visit their web site at HYPERLINK “http://www.palmspringslibrary.org/” www.craveps.com or call 760-469-4587.
The City of Palm Springs has a wonderful history of valuing library services. As far back as 1919, well before incorporation, the residents had established a public library in a small adobe building. As the village grew, the citizens followed the library through more than 12 different locations. With over 100,000 individual items, the Palm Springs Public Library offers a varied and comprehensive collection to the community. The Library is located at 300 S. Sunrise Way, on the corner of Sunrise Way and Baristo Road, one of the anchors of Sunrise Park and a destination for residents and visitors alike.
