We also Thank the Street Painting Festival for graciously offering their tents allowing our non-downtown merchants to participate.

Volunteers from the NAPC will be on hand at every participating location to assist merchants and ticket holders with information and FREE samples of all the Great Taste Lake Worth has to offer! For more information, visit the NAPC website or the NAPC on facebook.

Lake Worth Little Free Libraries

The Lake Worth Little Free Library Project is off to a great start. By Feb/March 2016, forty Little Free Libraries that are already fully funded will be up and running. We have a current waiting list of more than 20 individuals who have volunteered to be Little Free Library Stewards as soon as more libraries are available. We will be applying for more grants this year to fund these additional Little Free Libraries. 

To see all the LFL locations in Lake Worth, please visit our interactive map by clicking on the Little Free Chalkboard Library in the top of the right hand column. The map is real easy to enlarge and if you click on one of the spots, a window will open with the address of the library and the name of the Steward.

The Lake Worth Little Free Libraries are brought to our Neighborhoods through the collaborative effort of the NAPC, the College Park Neighborhood Association and the Friends of the Lake Worth Library, who each applied for and received in total $15,000 from the Palm Beach County Office of Community Revitalization through their Resident Education to Action Program. 

This entire project has received extraordinary support and assistance from the City of Lake Worth, for which we are very appreciative. Three of the Little Free Libraries in our family were built by the Stewards themselves and two more have been graciously donated by the Palm Beach County Credit Union.
