The Palm Desert Public Library is an oasis in the desert! They have a good magazine collection, well-stocked new book section and lovely children's section. The extensive audiobook, video and DVD collections are wonderful for this small library. Since the distances are so great in the Coachella Valley, it is wonderful to have a book-on-tape or CD to while away the drive! They also have an innovative "free to take" area near the entrance, where you can drop off magazines/newsletters/Readers Digest books that you are finished reading. I love this! Also, the wait to use a computer (8-10?) is relatively short and signup (though low tech handwritten sheet) is easy. The reference librarians are always helpful and friendly. Nice small-town feel to this library.

PROS: Good collection books on tape or CD; "free to take" zone
CONS: Sometimes grumpy front desk staff (overwhelmed?)
