Hip hip hooray for the li­brary of Del­ray

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - ON THE SCENE -

Sum­mer is near­ing an end, and stu­dents are headed back to school. While kids are still play­ing, the Del­ray Beach Pub­lic Li­brary is plan­ning ahead with school sup­plies, re­cently com­plet­ing it’s in­au­gu­ral “Off to a Good Start” school sup­ply pro­gram. This pro­gram was the idea of long­time li­brary vol­un­teers Fran and Leon Sachs of Del­ray Beach who joined forces with Wal­greens to pro­vide 100 “back to school starter kits” to the Del­ray Full Ser­vice Cen­ter in Del­ray Beach.

The lo­cal Wal­greens made avail­able spe­cially priced school sup­plies at a deep dis­count that were pur­chased by Mr. and Mrs. Sachs and the Li­brary, so that li­brary vol­un­teers could as­sem­ble 100 kits in or­der to give each stu­dent at the Del­ray Full Ser­vice Cen­ter a boost to start a suc­cess­ful school year.
