The City of Mount Pleasant, in a heartfelt tribute, honored the retired Library Director Helen Thompson for her exceptional 12 years of service. As a testament to her dedication, the new Mount Pleasant Library Giving Tree was named in her honor on May 6.

During the ceremony, attended by staff, family, and members of the Friends of the Library and Library Board, the City unveiled the “Helen Thompson Mount Pleasant Public Library Giving Tree” sculpture in the library.

The Giving Tree, a stunning piece of art, is designed to recognize library donors. Their names, or the names of those they wish to honor or memorialize, will be engraved on bronze, silver, and gold leaves of the tree, symbolizing their contribution levels. This beautiful artwork stands as a testament to the generosity and community spirit that our library embodies.

“The library is truly the heartbeat of our community,” said City Manager Ed Thatcher. “I can’t think of a better way to show our gratitude for Helen’s positive, lasting impact in our City and throughout Titus County than continuing her legacy through the Giving Tree fund-raising program.”

The program’s contribution levels are bronze leaf, $150 or more; silver leaf, $500 or more; gold leaf, $1,000 or more; and gold rocks, $5,000 or more.
