“Students need a quiet and safe place to be able to study and do their homework,” said Library Director Robert Shupe. “The Palmdale City Library is going to help ensure there is that kind of space for the youth of Palmdale. There has always been a need for space like this, but it seems to be especially critical during this time when students are adjusting to life with and after COVID so drastically affecting their learning and studying routines.”
