Add a Leaf to the Tree of Knowledge

Since 2004, the Waukee Public Library Friends Foundation has added leaves to the Tree of Knowledge, located in the entrance hall. Growing an endowment to benefit the library, your donation of $50 per leaf will bring enjoyment and knowledge to your community for many years. Each leaf can be engraved with one name. Families or groups of families may be grouped on a branch. Engraved leaves make great gifts or recognition. Recipients may be notified by a card from the Friends Foundation.
