The landscaped walkway from Race Street to the library’s Green Street entrance is on the site of the historic Cherry Alley. The plaza is a pleasant location to read a book, enjoy lunch, or take advantage of the library’s free wireless.
The Cherry Alley pavers are a perfect way to make your family, friends and loved ones -- even a pet – a permanent part of the library. They make unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays or graduations, or a special memorial tribute.
The Cherry Alley Project is a fundraising initiative of The Urbana Free library Foundation. The proceeds from this on-going project are used for the purchase of art and other enhancements to the library.
