When is a library more then a library? When it’s a modern hub for learning, meeting, exploring, researching and relaxing. Forget images of libraries of the past – which conjure thoughts of books and card files. Instead, picture a modern world of activity located in the heart of the city that provides
a common, welcoming access point for information and learning. To meet the various needs of a diverse and growing community, the role of the city’s library has evolved well beyond book borrowing. The library landscape may have changed, but its value has only grown.
In keeping with the city’s laser focus on diversity and inclusion, the Boynton Beach City Library serves all members of the community regardless of age, ethnicity, background, socio-economic status, education, or physical ability. From infants and children attending weekly story time to help build their early literacy skills, to seniors volunteering and socializing, the library is a modern community center. Children, teens, job seekers, entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals, retirees and new American citizens utilize library services to enhance their lives.
In addition to meeting traditional needs, the library has become a technology hub, a gathering place and a life-long learning center. It is uniquely positioned to increase access to information, build cultural and economic connections, and foster a more equitable community – some of the highest priorities for the City of Boynton Beach.
