All funds raised will be used to replace the 30-plus-year-old playground that has reached the end of its life.
When Heights Libraries obtained the PEACE Park property in 2018, it pledged to become a good steward of the six-acre property, which was once an elementary school. The Library has leased the building to Coventry PEACE Campus, Inc. and now is focusing on creating a fully accessible playground for use by people of all ages and abilities.
The FFHL has set a modest goal of $5,000 for the Library Day of Giving and hopes to attract matching donors from the community. Any donations made during April will go toward creating a master plan for the park and playground (the master plan process will allow for community input).
Another campaign will be launched at a later date for construction.
