This special fundraising effort generated $160,000 for phase one of the Library's renovations in 2012. The Giving Tree is a permanent display in the Waynesboro Public Library that recognizes donors who helped grow the Library by contributing $500 or more to the Friends. It began growing in 2010 in conjunction with our Branch Out capital campaign to support major renovations of the Library and continues today to encourage and recognize philanthropy. There are four categories of Giving Tree donations: Bronze – $500 – $999 Silver – $1,000 – $2,499 Gold – $2,500 – $4,999 Platinum – $5,000 or more Donors are recognized by having their name engraved on an appropriately colored leaf that is added to the Giving Tree. Platinum donors are recognized by a plaque that is installed beside the Giving Tree. The Giving Tree is a wonderful way to remember a loved one, celebrate a special event in your life, or acknowledge your love for the Waynesboro Public Library.
