Pulitzer Prize winning author Richard Russo, Honorary Chair of the Gloversville Public Library Capital Campaign, announced at an October 29 event at the Library a gift to the Campaign of $1 Million from The Lucius N. Littauer Foundation. The Foundation, located in New York City, was founded by Lucius N. Littauer, a Gloversville, NY born and raised businessman, member of congress and philanthropist.
The gift significantly advances the goal of the Capital Campaign to modernize and expand the Library, which was built in 1904 and has never been significantly renovated.
"In view of the Foundation’s ties to Gloversville, our historic commitment to libraries, and our current interest in economic development, the Gloversville Public Library Restoration and Expansion Project is a unique opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of people in a community that remains important to us," stated Robert Frost, Littauer Foundation President in a letter to the campaign.
