Only One You Art Garden

“There’s Only One You in this Great Big World.  Make It a Better Place.”              Only One You by Linda Kranz

Inspired by the children’s book Only One You by Linda Kranz, the Homer Glen Foundation is helping the Homer Township Public Library create a space for individual expression and reflection.  The Only One You Art Garden will serve as a focal point outside the large gazing window of the Children’s section of the library located on 151st Street in Homer Glen. The Art Garden will include “a rock river streamthat will provide an opportunity for children (and adults) to paint a Unique Rock symbolizing their own unique identity.  Each person’s painted stone can then be added to the “river” in the Only One You Art Garden adding to the beauty and flow of this creative and motivating mini- park.

$5,000.00 is needed to prep the location, construct the river base, purchase plants and boulders and to install edging and a pathway. Funding is needed by July 15th to ensure the successful Rock Garden Dedication and Celebration scheduled for July 20th.

Over 9,000 patrons visit the Homer Township Library each month with more than 14,000 children participating in scheduled programs. The Only One You Art Garden will enrich the experience of these individuals and may encourage newcomers to visit and take advantage of all the library has to offer. Please will lend your support to this exciting and innovative community project by contributing to this fund-raising effort. It’s amazing how even small contributions can leave a long lasting legacy. Leave you mark –in the form of a rock—contribute today.
