Note from the Executive Director - Food For Thought 2022

Dear Foundation Friends,

We're extremely excited to announce that  two members of our Board of Directors, Kim Bepler and Ana Paladino, will co-chair the 2022 Food for Thought gala, our annual fundraising event that provides essential support to the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach at an elegant evening with local luminaries as table hosts.
Food for Thought will take place on Saturday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. and will move from its longtime home at the Library to the Norton Museum of Art. Last year’s gala raised $220,000 for essential services (more than the past 3 years combined!), including homework centers, art and culture offerings, reading programs and more.  
These life-changing programs available to children, teens, and adults across Palm Beach County are all free of charge thanks to the financial support provided by the West Palm Beach Library Foundation. A few of these resources include Grab & Go Kits, Baby & Toddler Yoga Classes, Summer Reading, Book Clubs, SAT Prep and College Prep Workshops and Get that Job which helps with employment recovery assistance.

If you're interested in supporting the event, email me at

As always, THANK YOU for your continued support of the West Palm Beach Library Foundation. You make our community stronger by allowing us to fulfill our mission with your support.
All my best,
Dean W. Dimke
Executive Director
West Palm Beach Library Foundation
