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,


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


Dear Livingston Library Community,

Books are a uniquely portable magic. – Stephen King

A book sale with over 20,000 items organized into over a dozen categories. A Collectors Corner for hard-to-find, signed, and unique or antiquarian books. DVD’s, Cd’s, even puzzles and toys. This may sound like a bibliophiles dream, but this dream becomes reality right here at the Livingston Public Library!

That’s right, the annual Friends of the Library BookFest is back! Beginning Thursday, October 25 (Friends members have early access starting at 2:30 pm on the 24th) and running through Sunday, October 28, the library’s program room will be transformed into a wonderland for book lovers. With hardcover books costing a dollar and paperbacks for 25 cents, the prices can’t be beat! Not only can you build your home library, but you will also be supporting the Livingston Public Library. Last year this sale generated over $7,000!  These funds have been used to support a wide range of programs and events – the Summer Reading Program, Literary Liaisons, Adult Art classes, the museum pass program, movies, and concerts are just a few examples. So be sure to stop by BookFest and find some magic to take home with you.

Because here at the Library we get by with a little help from our friends.
All the best,
