“I can just see the big smiles and hear the happy squeals from our youngest library goers,” says Sharon Walker, our first Everbright donor. “Thank you to STAR Bank for their gift to Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library-Whitestown Branch to bring this wonderful addition to our Children’s Department. It will be enjoyed by all.”

The STAR Bank Everbright Wall is so much more than a giant light peg wall, it is a delightful experience of hundreds of hexagonally – spaced color dials that can be easily changed by small hands to create colorful shapes and images.

As a STAR Bank employee, STAR Bank Matching Gift Campaign Volunteer and Whitestown resident, Mo Glunt, is excited to get the word out. “We are kicking off a peer-to-peer campaign to raise an additional $9,000. So far we have ‘Neighborhood Champions’ from many Whitestown neighborhoods and welcome everyone to help us spread the word. My girls couldn’t be more excited to walk to the Library once it opens, and I am thrilled to help the Library raise funds for the Children’s Area.”

As an open-ended canvas for creativity and learning, the Star Bank Everbright Wall will:

  • Develop the building blocks for early literacy
  • Engage young learners in geometry and mathematical thinking
  • Build spatial intelligence and logical problem-solving skills

For a suggested gift of $50 we will mail you a colorful “light” of your own that you can personalize to bring into the Whitestown Branch during our Grand Opening Celebration or thereafter to add your name to our STAR Bank Everbright fundraising wall.
