LIVINGSTON, NJ — As people around the world celebrate Oktoberfest, the Livingston Public Library is celebrating BookFEST, an annual book sale open to the public for one week in October.

From Oct. 24 through Oct. 27, the Friends of the Livingston Public Library will turn the program room into a “used-book wonderland,” where community members can purchase popular used titles at bargain prices in support of library programs.

“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,” said library director Amy Babcock-Landry. “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…We wouldn’t be able to get by without a little help from our friends!”
