About the upcoming Lake Worth Mango Festival in today's Post print edition and a surprise too!

Also in today's (6/6) print edition of The Palm Beach Post is Mary Lindsey's Point of View titled, "Little Free Libraries brings books closer to kids", which you'll find on page A10, the editorial page. This week's Lake Worth Herald also has news on the Little Free Libraries, an excerpt:

     On hand to pull the red ribbon at the Grand Opening of the 41st Little Free Library in Lake Worth were Patrick Shandorf of Guardians Credit Union [120 N. Federal Hwy.] and Cindy Ruth Ansell, Children’s Librarian at our Lake Worth Library. Guardians Credit Union generously donated funds to purchase this and one other Little Free Library that will be placed near Barton Elementary School later this month.
     John Deese, President of Guardians Credit Union, said “It is very rewarding for Guardians Credit Union to be involved in the Little Free Library project. As a not for profit cooperative organization we understand the importance of community involvement and the need to be a good partner in the community."

On the upcoming Mango Festival from the Post beat reporter Kevin Thompson:

     If you love mangos, here’s a free festival just for you. On Saturday, the city will host The Lake Worth International Mango Festival for the first time.
     The event will be held at the Cultural Plaza from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and celebrate all things mango.

     The festival has been held in Miami and West Palm Beach in previous years. Patti Sheldon, one of the event’s coordinators, said Lake Worth is the perfect location.
