Friends of the Livingston Library

Friends of the Livingston Library

The Friends of the Livingston Public Library invites you to “Take A Chance on the Library,” during their annual spring fundraiser which culminates on May 18th.  This fundraiser offers you the opportunity to participate in a raffle and silent auction for the benefit of the Livingston Public Library.  

You can participate in two ways! Stop by the library and visit the display where you can see photos of the auction items, submit bids, and request raffle tickets, or visit the Friends’ Take a Chance website at: https://takeachance.livingstonlibrary.org You can also purchase 50/50 cash raffle tickets. 

This year, the Friends of the Livingston Library is excited to have nearly 30 items up for auction including gift certificates (e.g., West Essex tribune, Wegmans, Paper Mill Playhouse, and Window Works), as well as an array of exciting packages from cooking to reading to travel. 

The Friends of the Library consider this event a “win-win” as it not only provides the Friends with additional funds that enables the Library to offer a wide array of wonderful programs and services, but also allows lucky patrons the opportunity to win terrific merchandise.  One fortunate patron will also go home with the cash jackpot—50% of the proceeds from the raffle ticket sales. 

The auction has just opened in advance of the celebration of National Library Week (April 4th – 10th).  For the culmination on May 18th, plans are currently in progress to provide public access through Zoom registration.  Winners will be contacted and need not be present virtually or otherwise.


Friends is an all-volunteer not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the Livingston Public Library.  Friends funds programs and services not covered by the Library’s budget from the Township.  These include the Museum Pass Program providing free admission; craft, author, and other programs for young people; summer reading programs for children, teens, and adults; musical, performance, and cultural programs; life-long learning lectures; Senior Happening; film series; technology acquisitions (e.g., Little Pim language database for children, website support); the ESL Program (English as a Second Language); and book and subscription purchases.
