'Giving Tree' at Waupaca Area Public Library

Link to October 23 Waupaca County Post article.

Excerpt: A classic children’s book has inspired a community exhibit at the Waupaca Area Public Library.

“A Community of Giving” is on exhibit now through Nov. 21 at the library. Twenty-one local nonprofit groups have made displays of their efforts to meet the needs of the community. Each display is designed around the theme of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

“That’s why all the displays have references to leaves and trees and branches and trunks,” according to Director Peg Burington.

The Giving Tree tells the story of a boy’s relationship to a tree that always meets his needs. The tree provides a place for a swing, fruit to eat, shade from the heat and branches to build a home.
