Volumes of Giving

Volumes of Giving is a donor recognition program for the Township of Uxbridge Public Library. The "Volumes of Giving" is a wonderful sculpture of larger than life size books designed to be inscribed with the names of special people, groups and businesses.

Karen Ruppel was the inspiration for this project. She served as a valued Library Board Trustee for a decade until her death in 1996. Karen believed in sharing and giving. She loved books. Her humour was captivating and her sense of whimsy made all smile and magic happen. The Library Board wanted to remember Karen Ruppel and the result was the idea for a project that would also raise much needed funds for the Uxbridge and Zephyr branches of the Library. Her spirit carries on through this imaginative sculpture which graces our wonderful Uxbridge Library. People have an opportunity to provide recognition for groups and individuals and the Library gratefully benefits at the same time. Karen would approve.

The design was conceived and donated by local artists Lynda and Ron Baird who were friends of Karenís. Ensure the vitality of our library and be part of this exciting project by acquiring a book in the "Volumes of Giving" stack.
