Everyday around the world you will find Rotarians making an impact in their community, or half a world away, but one day each year, Rotarians in the US dedicate a specific day to local community projects. This year Rotarians across the Coachella Valley made time to give back to their community as part of the annual Rotarians at Work Day.
This year, members of the Rotary Club of Palm Springs along with students from the Palm Springs High School Interact Club joined together to execute an intensive book-by-book cleaning at the Palm Springs Public Library. Due to staffing and budget limitations it is simply not possible for the library to clean the volumes of book that pass through its doors, particularly in the children’s section of the library, so local Rotarians and Interact club members stepped in donning gloves and armed with cleaning solutions and towels and targeted the books, movies and even the playhouse in the library’s children’s section.
