Message From The Director: We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends

Amy Director

Livingston Library Community,

As we continue to face this unprecedented global health crisis, the Livingston Public Library staff has been working diligently to find innovative ways to bring you the library services that you value and depend on.

FriendsIn addition to you, the members of the Livingston Community, the Friends of the Livingston Public Library has remained one of our strongest supporters.  Our Friends group not only supports the library, but also helps to make all of our programs possible.  A few of the many programs and services supported by Friends include database and technology acquisition, museum passes, summer reading programs, creative arts, author visits, lectures, Senior Happening, film programs, ESL (English as a Second Language), and book and subscription purchases.

The Friends of the Livingston Public Library is currently launching their 2020-2021 Membership Drive. Because we have not been able to hold our annual book sale, membership is more important now than ever. When you join the friends, you will receive notification of your membership as well as seasonal newsletters mailed to your home with information on how the Friends have been supporting Library initiatives.

Amy, Director

Message From the Director: Take A Chance on the Library 2020

Amy Director

Livingston Library Community,

The Friends of the Livingston Public Library make everything that we do possible.  From our great programs such as our popular creative arts to musical performances, to many of our virtual online resources that have become such a comfort to us today, the hard work of our Friends Volunteers are a big part of our success in having these resources available to you, our Livingston community.

The Friends of the Livingston Public Library have been working hard to plan their annual Take A Chance Silent Auction. Auctioned off in this fundraiser are an exciting array of items like:

  • A fun-filled basket of Disney merchandise
  • Accessory baskets such as Coach
  • A delicious wine & snack basket
  • A subscription to West Essex Tribune
  • Theater tickets for venues including Paper Mill Playhouse and
  • Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey

It’s a great way to not only give back to the community through the library but also to support the many businesses that call Livingston home.

You can view the fundraiser online on the Friends of the Livingston Public Library’s Take A Chance Silent Auction webpage, here.

Stay in touch, stay safe. We all look forward to seeing you again soon,
-Amy
