Children’s Tree

The Children’s Tree is a beautiful sculpted brass and wood tree, located across from the elevators of the LeRoy Collins Main Library. The Tallahassee Northside Kiwanis Club donated the tree in 1991 to commemorate the opening of the new building. The tree continues to help improve the Children’s Area by expanding the resources and the technology available to children.

The tree is construction of 300 individual leaves and 12 rocks. Purchasing a leaf ($1000) or rock ($5000) honors the youngest in our community by ensuring excellence in educational opportunities. Individuals, families and business purchasing a leaf or rock also become a Lifetime Member of the Friends of the Library and receive several associated benefits.
