Lions Club Donation Helps Visually Impaired

The Delray Beach Public Library recently received another gift of $500 from the Delray Beach Lion’s Club. Mr. John S. Parke, Treasurer, and a member of the Delray Beach Lions Club since 1970, is shown here presenting a check to Library Director Alan Kornblau. The Delray Beach Lions Club has supported the Library since 1939. It has been giving a gift of $ 500 to the Delray Beach Public Library twice each year since 2001 for a total thus far of $11,000. The Lions Club requests that this money be used to purchase materials for the visually impaired, such as large print books and books on tape. The Library’s collection of such materials is quite extensive and extremely popular thanks to the continued support of the Lions Club. The Library was also awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Lions Club for collecting and maintaining many large print books and recordings.
