Lake Wales Public Library


Edward W. Bok Academy North has the opportunity to partner with the Lake Wales Public Library to help provide printed materials.

Being within walking distance, our reading classes can check out books regularly and are encouraged to read for 20 minutes each day!

We are beyond thankful to our community partners, the Lake Wales Public Library, and the Youth Services area for their continued support in loving reading.
