  1. Hello,
    I work for WPTV channel 5 in West Palm Beach. I live in Palm City…and post stories about Palm City each week on WPTV.Com.

    If there is anything regarding the Cummings Branch in Palm City that you would like me to publicize…please send it to me.

    I was in the library today and noticed there is a drive going on for school supplies…and people can drop off items in the library. If I can get more information about that I will be happy to let our web viewers know about it.

    Thanks in advance, Kelley Dunn
