Building the Fitchburg Library

Barbara Matthews, the first president of the Friends of the Fitchburg Library, describes the planning process and the financing initiatives used to build Fitchburg’s first public library. This library replaced a bookmobile that drove around Fitchburg for 5 hours each week.

The library will use donated items in the manner deemed most appropriate. Items may be added to the library collection, donated to the Friends of the Library for resale, or discarded. Library staff members are not able to return items once they have been donated.
