Message from the Director: Raise Some Dough

Do you love pizza?  Do you love the Library?  If so, now is the perfect opportunity to indulge your cravings and support a great cause.  The Friends of the Livingston Public Blog Post GraphicsLibrary are hosting a fundraising event at Blaze Pizza located at 280 Eisenhower Parkway, on Thursday, March 21 between 4 PM and 8 PM.  If you bring in the flyer below (or show it on your phone) before paying, 20% of the proceeds from your meal will be donated back to the Friends of the Livingston Public Library.   How yummy is that?!

But wait!  There’s more.  If you bring your Blaze Pizza Receipt from March 21 to the Library you can select one complimentary item (book or non-print) from the Friends Ongoing Book Sale shelves.  Just drop your receipt in the cash box in lieu of payment!

As Kevin James said,  “There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.”  I say, add a good book to that and you have the perfect match.

All the best,
