Every Wednesday morning: “Coffee and Conversation” with Lake Worth Commissioner Herman C. Robinson.

The message from Commissioner Robinson:

I want to invite you to “Coffee and Conversation” at The Book Cellar bookstore in Downtown Lake Worth. This event will be held every Wednesday morning at 9:30. Come talk about the Casino property, roads, traffic, the weather. . .

Below are more details about Commissioner Robinson’s weekly event. But first, there is new news to report.

A bulletin was just issued by Florida correspondent Ron Hayes about The Book Cellar headlined, “Resurgence of the Local Bookstore”. To learn more about journalist Ron Hayes and his account about our impressive new bookstore in this vibrant City here are two excerpts from state correspondent Ron Hayes’ account:

On Oct. 6 [2017], Ms. Ayraud and two co-owners opened The Book Cellar, an actual independent neighborhood bookstore at the corner Lake Avenue and J Street in the heart of Lake Worth’s bustling downtown.

More from Hayes’ dispatch beginning with
a quote by Ms. Ayraud:

     “I was living in Miami and moved here [to City of Lake Worth] two years ago because of the small-town, funky atmosphere,” Ms. Ayraud explained on a recent Wednesday morning as one customer arrived to collect a title he’d ordered and others browsed the shelves.

In preparation for “Coffee and Conversation” at The Book Cellar what would you like to discuss? Maybe parking and traffic? Maybe talk about a new Palm Tran bus stop at the regional Lake Worth Beach?

Here is the view of the room at the Dixie Hwy. Multimodal Corridor Study at The Hatch:
