Message From the Director: Livi Cares: An Adult Volunteer Club

“The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.” — Helen Keller

Livingston Library Community, 

The Livingston Public Library has been pleased to continue its third year of the Livi Cares Adult Volunteer Club.  Beginning on July 1st and continuing throughout the month of July, patrons have been welcome to drop-in to the library to receive supplies needed to write handwritten letters that will be sent to Seniors in need of a smile through the organization Letters Against Isolation

Letters can be completed in person at the library or supplies can be brought home to be completed at one’s leisure.  Letters are currently being collected at the Reference Desk, where they will then be sent to the organization, and will continue to be collected until July 31st. So far we have collected over 105 letters!

Be sure to stop by the library before the end of the month to write your letters. This small act is sure to make someone’s day a little bit brighter.

Best,

Amy Babcock, Director  

Letters Against Isolation partners with nursing homes and long term care facilities to send letters to seniors. You can learn more about their organization at: https://www.lettersagainstisolation.com/

  1. Hi- I saw the bags at the circulation desk and I didn’t know what they were for but now that I’ve read the above I would love to participate. Do I have to sign up to take one of the bags or can I just grab one when I’m at the library next? Thanks.

    1. Hi Olivia! You can just stop by to grab a bag the next time you are in the library! The program will be running until the end of the month. See you soon! -Jessica, Adult Services & Acquisitions Librarian
