The Library’s Art Wall was part of the original design of our facility. The goal of this design was to provide an area within the Library to display all mediums of art by and for our community. Our coordinator works with any artist and/or individual to showcase and promote their professional skills, their passion for their hobby, and their desire to share their personal interest in the world of arts. Since opening the Library, we have showcased 24 individuals from our community as well as our Library children’s art work.
The Library Donor Wall was designed to recognize those individuals and businesses who continually show support of our Foundation project with their time, talents, and financial resources. It is a Living Wall which is updated every year in January and July to capture those contributions from the prior six months. Contributors are recognized by a personal engraved plaque with the wording of their choice. There are 9 monetary levels of giving within the wall which includes honorariums and memorials. A brochure is available at the Library explaining our procedure. We still need our community’s help on our journey to reach our destination.See our staff members for information about becoming a Donor in support of the McIver’s Grant Public Library and reserve your place on the Donors’ Wall.
