Lake Worth Beach Library news in this week’s Lake Worth Herald.


Have you been to the public library in the downtown lately? Below is more information about this public facility. Here is the headline, the byline and an excerpt from the news in the Herald:


LWB Library CreatElab to Expand

By Cindy Ansell, Children’s Services Librarian.

The Friends of the Lake Worth Beach Library have been awarded a grant for $5060.00 from Healthier Lake Worth to increase the equipment available for use by the students.

“There are many more students using the Lab today than when we opened the Lab almost three years ago, “ said Kay Ralston, supervisor of Lake Worth Beach Public Library’s CreatElab. The Lab, located in the children’s area within the Library, seeks to offer support to Lake Worth Beach students. Students, who possess library cards, have access to desktops, laptops, and tablets to complete homework assignments or play computer games.

Currently, the lab has 22 seats, but only has equipment for 12 students at a time. According to Ralston, the Lab serves more than 350 students per month, requiring students to place their names on a waiting list on a daily basis.

The Friends of the Library will use the funds to purchase additional devices for student use, as well as a charging station and other Lab supplies. “We are thrilled to expand the Lab,” Ralston stated, “thanks to the generosity of Healthier Lake Worth.”
