FITCHBURG — The Fitchburg Redevelopment Authority (FRA) has reaffirmed its commitment to the community’s educational and cultural enrichment by generously donating $50,000 to the Fitchburg Public Library’s OWL Capital Campaign.
The OWL (Offering a World of Learning) Capital Campaign is a visionary initiative to enhance the facilities and services of the Fitchburg Public Library and has garnered significant support from various community partners within the city. The FRA’s contribution further underscores its dedication to fostering growth, accessibility, and innovation in the heart of Fitchburg.
“Libraries are integral community resources that empower individuals, promote lifelong learning, and foster a sense of unity,” said Meagen Donoghue, executive director of the FRA. “We believe that by investing in the expansion and modernization of the Fitchburg Public Library, we are investing in the future of our city.”
The $50,000 donation from the FRA will play a pivotal role in advancing the library’s capital campaign goals, including the renovation and creation of innovative spaces, expanded programming opportunities and improved accessibility for all patrons.
The FRA is an independent economic development agency for the city of Fitchburg. A quasi-public agency created almost 60 years ago, the FRA is responsible for urban renewal planning, land acquisition, business relocation, demolition of obsolete structures, and public improvements within the Urban Renewal District of Fitchburg.
