Message From the Director: BookFEST!

As people around the world celebrate Oktoberfest, here in Livingston we are celebrating BookFEST!  Yes, you read that write, it’s time for the Friends of the Library’s annual BookFEST sale.

Once a year for an entire week during the month of October, The Friends of the Livingston Public Library turn our program room into a used book wonderland, where you can purchase popular used titles at bargain prices.  BookFEST will run from Thursday, October 24, 2019 until Sunday, October 27, 2019.  If you have been contemplating joining the Friends of the Livingston Public Library, now is also an excellent time to do so!  Friends of the Livingston Public Library members will have early access to the Friends-only BookFEST pre-sale on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 from 2:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

By patronizing BookFEST you are helping to fund all of the many wonderful free programs we enjoy all year at the Library, making it the perfect excuse to stock up on your to-read pile.  The township funds our operating expenses; the Friends pay for everything from Nursery Rhyme Time to Senior Happening, including teen SAT prep, public lectures and performances, adult creativity workshops– and so much more.

Be sure to stop by the library during BookFEST week!  We wouldn’t be able to get by without a little help from our friends!

  1. Can I donate to the library my Engineering and Management Science books to th book fest or the library? Or can we develop a program to ship them to underdeveloped countries like in Africa or Asia where they may find it useful.. I do not have a heat tojust throw them away in a dumpster.

    Thanks
