Patrons can dine-in or take out, according to Dough. There is no extra cost to the patron because the donation is made by Anthony’s on behalf of the diners who get to enjoy a tasty Anthony’s meal while helping support the local library.

The Give Back Day is done as part of Friends’ Dining for Dollars Program which gives patrons an added incentive, Dough said. Participants will receive a complimentary item from the Friends of the Library Ongoing Book Sale by dropping their March 21 receipt from Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza of Livingston in the cash box in lieu of payment for any book or non-print media item. 

The Ongoing Book Sale features some 1200 items and is open anytime the Library is open. The stock is constantly refreshed and is no expiration date on this incentive.

Proceeds from Friends’ Give Back Day are used by Friends to support programs and services not covered by the library’s budget from the Township. This includes youth programming such as the Summer Reading Program, Yoga for Kids, and author events. 

Friends is also funds family-friendly activities like the Museum Pass Program, which offers free passes to area museums as well as series for all ages including Music Matters, Think Theater, and Literary Liaisons. Friends also supports the library’s ESL program (English as a Second Language), e-readers, other technology acquisition, the purchase of books, the monthly subscription to Book Page and more.
