Would you like to have your name or that of a loved one on the Pauline Evans-Helen McGraw Giving Tree? Local artist, Craig Wilson designed and sculpted our unique giving tree. Mr. Wilson’s beautiful work can be seen in private collections and public spaces all around the Finger Lakes area. Here in the Rochester area, he created the Gates and Bench for the Discovery Children’s Garden at Strong National Museum of Play, the Bench for the Fairport Savings Bank in Irondequoit, the Eagle Sculpture for West Irondequoit High School, and the Preening Egrets sculpture at Parkridge Hospital.
The Pauline Evans-Helen McGraw Giving Tree was named in honor of two pioneers of the Irondequoit Public Library. It was Pauline Evans who started the first official library in the town in the basement of the Lincoln Bank on the corner of Titus and Cooper. Helen McGraw was the first certified public librarian to serve our town. Now their names will live on in this exquisite giving tree.
The Giving Tree is a huge metal sculpture that will be mounted right near the front door of the new library. If you would like to be a part of the Giving Tree, please download the Giving Tree Donor Form, or go to IrondequoitLibraryFoundation.com and click on the “Contribute Now” button to donate online.
And don’t forget… The rest of the fund raising campaign to help hold down the cost of the new library is in full swing! Money has been raised to cover the costs of furniture, fixtures and equipment. There are also naming opportunities. All donations large and small will benefit our new library for years to come. If you wish to contribute please fill out and send in the Pledge Form. You can also donate online at: IrondequoitLibraryFoundation.com!
Thank you for supporting “The Library the Community is Building Together!”
Both branches of the Irondequoit Public Library will be closed on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. Regular hours will resume on Monday, July 6.
The Town of Irondequoit will host the annual Fourth of July Festival this weekend and a complete list of events can be found at the town’s website. Don’t forget about fireworks on Saturday at 9:30 PM!
