Jim Hicks, a life-long Friend of the Palm Springs Library, died recently. A third-generation resident of Palm Springs, Jim was an active member of the community, serving on many Boards and Commissions organized to help others. He joined The Friends of the Library Board several years ago and helped our organization by serving as Chair of Finance, Board Development and Vice President. 

He also was an active advocate for the Library who sought new and different ways to increase the public’s awareness of our organization.

Former FOPSL President, Chris Seidel, writes:  “Jim and I served as President and Vice President for several years together and I came to know him as a very smart, caring, progressive individual whose advice I sought and always welcomed.  In addition to his other stellar qualities, he was a hell of a nice guy.”

As a testament to Jim’s passion for reading, his family requests that friends wishing to honor his memory do so with a donation to The Friends of the Palm Springs Library, a 501(c)(3) Non-profit Corporation. At a later date, a memorial service will be held where members of the community will be invited to join Jim's family and friends in celebrating his life.


The Friends of the Palm Springs Library 
exists to help the Library staff 
provide world-class service to the community.

A Friend is one the best things

you can have by your side ---
