600 4th Street, West Palm Beach, FL
Open every day from dusk to dawn
The public library is housed in a converted and refurbished shipping container and includes a range of reading materials for all ages to enjoy. Under the Taylor Moxey Foundation, the Taylor Moxey Library was created to help improve literacy in low-income areas. The project is designed to make libraries more accessible to children and adults locally, nationally and internationally through the Taylor Moxey Library Systems. Moxey’s West Palm Beach library marks the third location, with others in the small village of Mangrove Cay in Andros Bahamas and Omni Park in downtown Miami.
**Works on the honor system**
The Taylor Moxey Foundation is conceivably Moxey’s most impressive venture. She started it solely to empower, educate and endow young girls and boys with the tools necessary for them to become civic-minded entrepreneurs and leaders. At a very young age, she grasped the concept that philanthropy is simply not about monetary donations and charity, but it is about solving a problem and empowering the less fortunate to bring about real change. Moxey’s foundation most recently partnered with TECHO to work to build small homes for the underprivileged in Latin America and Haiti. For more information, visit taylormoxeyinc.com.
The grand opening is a partnership between the Taylor Moxey Foundation, the City of West Palm Beach, West Palm Beach Arts & Entertainment District and the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency.
