Donate to Our Community Giving Tree

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree, a beautiful book about a boy and his tree and how the simple act of giving can bring happiness.


We invite you to join the Verona Public Library as we work together to make a difference in our community through the power of generosity. From October 14 through November 26, 2014, the Verona Public Library will provide the opportunity to help worthwhile local causes through a small donation.


Participants are invited to purchase one (or more) colored leaves for $1 each and add their name to our Giving Tree. Each leaf represents a local charity: Angel's Wish pet adoption agency, the Friends of the Verona Public Library, and the Verona Area Needs Network (food pantry). All proceeds go to the corresponding charity.


Our goal is to not only help grow a strong community by giving back, but also to create a visual representation of the generosity of our patrons.


Help us grow a strong community through your impactful act of giving.

Snow Removal Reminder
Winter is on the way, which means it's time to start thinking about snow removal. During the winter months, many residents need to be able to safely use the public sidewalks. A vital element in providing clean and safe passage of pedestrians during the winter is in your hands, namely, the removal of snow and ice from public sidewalks and ramps.

The City of Verona has an ordinance regarding snow removal which identifies the responsibilities of citizens in removing snow and ice snow-shovel.jpg from sidewalks and ramps. Residents are required to clear snow from sidewalks within twenty-four hours after snow has stopped falling. Snow must be cleared the full width of the sidewalk or ramp, not just the width of the shovel or blower. The entire ordinance can be found Here. Compliance enables people of all ages and physical condition to have access to clean pedestrian walkways. Any questions about snow removal can be directed to the Building Inspection Department at 848-9940.
