Lasting recognition for Library Supporters
One focal point of the Children's Library area is the Library Giving Tree. Evoking Orange's citrus-growing history, the display provides one form of lasting recognition for library supporters. This 12-foot-high orange tree was custom-sculpted by local artist Mel Slavick. With many hundreds of leaves and oranges, the Giving Tree offers a chance for individuals, families, businesses, schools, and community groups to honor someone special.
The front of the delightful three-dimensional Giving Tree faces the central corridor to the Children's Library. The back covers the entry wall in the Homework Center. Both are central locations in the Orange Public Library & History Center. Placement of leaves and oranges is handled by the library design team to ensure optimum visibility.
