Cherry Alley

Cherry Alley Arch

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. 

Designated by a decorative arch at its east end, Cherry Alley features an attractive walkway paved with personalized bricks and two artworks commissioned by The Urbana Free Library Foundation. A gift of only $125 entitles you to personalize one of the Cherry Alley pavers. Your name will join those of your friends and neighbors for years to come, and you and your family can share the fun of seeing your inscription every time you visit the library.

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.
