Last week the Opelika Library Friends was honored to accept a community grant from Golden State Foods. The $19,308.93 grant will be used to purchase an outdoor musical garden which will be placed in the library green space.

Rosanna McGinnis, Opelika Public Library Director stated, “We are extremely grateful to Golden State Foods Foundation and their employees for selecting the Opelika Library Friends as a grant recipient. They are wonderful community partners and their donation will have a tremendous impact on the citizens of Opelika.”

Incorporating outdoor musical instruments along the pathways of Library Park will allow visitors of all ages and abilities to interact with each other, socialize and enjoy the sculptural aesthetic of these harmonically tuned instruments. The Opelika Library Friends board anticipates the installation of the musical garden will be complete by late Spring 2022.

“As an associate-run-and-funded nonprofit, the volunteers of GSF Foundation’s Opelika Committee have together supported the Opelika Public Library’s new Musical Garden program to help improve the quality of life for children and families here in our local community. Music has the special ability to bring people together, and we look forward to celebrating these positively impactful connections with our neighbors for many years to come,” said Melissa Richardson, GSF Foundation Opelika Committee Chair.
