LIVINGSTON, NJ — Friends of the Livingston Library invites the public to participate in Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Give Back Day on Tuesday, May 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Anthony’s in Livingston Center will donate 20 percent of all patrons’ bills to Friends of the Library who indicate that they are there for Friends Give Back Day.

“Joining with Anthony’s in a Give Back Day is a win for everyone. Patrons can enjoy a delicious meal at Anthony’s while supporting our Library,” said Board President Mary Jane Dough.

There is no extra cost to the diner because the donation is made by Anthony’s on behalf of the diners.

Dough added, “Partnering with  restaurants is part of our ‘Dining for Dollars’ program.  As an added incentive, participants in this event can receive a complimentary book or non-print item of their choice from the Friends of the Library Ongoing Book Sale. It’s an additional way of saying thank you to our supporters.”

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 Children’s/Teens’ Summer Reading Program, Yoga for Kids, author events, and the language learning database for young children, Little Pim. 

It also includes family friendly activities like the Museum Pass Program which now offers free passes to area museums. Friends also provides funding for series for all ages including the Sunday Centennial Concert Series, Music Matters, Think Theater, and Literary Liaisons as well as the E-Reader Experience which permits patrons to borrow e-readers with pre-loaded books and the monthly subscription to Book Page, plus more!
