Dive into your next great read

Desert Water Agency’s Little Free Library opens on Saturday, Nov. 7, National Book Lover’s Day. Stop by to pick up water-themed, non-fiction, children’s or gardening books.

When you’re finished, return it, pass it on to another book lover or keep it for your collection. The popular, local gardening guide, Lush & Efficient, will be stocked at the Little Free Library to help locals with landscaping projects.

Social distancing and masks are required when visiting the library, which is open 7 days a week during daylight hours.

The Little Free Library is tucked directly outside our office front doors at 1200 S. Gene Autry Trail in Palm Springs. Due to our COVID-19 lobby closure, a part of the parking lot will be blocked off but don’t let that discourage you from heading up to our entrance to get a book.

DWA is proud to connect our neighborhood with reading resources, especially during a time of limited social interaction.

A huge ‘Thank you’ for making this possible to DWA board member and architect James Cioffi, and Palm Springs Welding Inc. for their pro bono work. Cioffi created the sleek mid-century design while PS Welding donated the labor and brought the design to life.

To help celebrate the launch, we’re giving away a new Kindle! Follow us on Facebook (@dwawater), Instagram (@desertwateragency) or Twitter (@dwawater) to enter the contest. Check rules below for details.

Little Free Libraries is a growing movement with 60,000 around the world in 80 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. Most have their own unique design fitting to their community. Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries.
