As Board Secretary Sue Cone said, “The biggest benefit is probably the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting our wonderful library. Use the discounts often enough, and membership pays for itself.”

Memberships, which run a year from the date of initial/renewed membership, are offered at different levels and make great gifts.

Further information and membership forms are also available online (http://livingston.bccls.org/friends.html and the https://www.facebook.com/friendsofthelivingstonlibrary) and at the Library.
