A Fine-Free Library

Beginning tomorrow, Friday, February 14, the Livingston Library will join several other Essex County libraries in no longer charging fines for most overdue materials. We think this is a great way to encourage residents who have been missing out to return to our wonderful library and all the resources it provides our community.

According to library director Amy Babcock Landry, close to 2,200 Livingston accounts have each accrued more than ten dollars in fines, including 800 accounts classified as juvenile, in seventh grade or lower. Of those accounts, 436 were in use within the last year. The hope is that those hundreds of young readers will return if the worry of overdue fines is eliminated. Typically, fines most affect children and senior citizens, those likeliest to take advantage of the library’s vast array of services.

 Members of the Rosary Society of Saint Catherine of Siena Church in Pittstown recently visited Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) with a “wildly generous” donation of more than 60 designer handbags stuffed with toiletries and cosmetics. “We’ve donated Thanksgiving baskets to Saint Philip’s and Saint James Churches in Phillipsburg and, at Christmastime, we delivered brand new children’s winter clothing to the Friendship Center for New Beginnings in Flemington,” said Rosary Society member Gail Jacobsen, who is shown here sharing a laugh with LPI founder Jeff Friedman “Jeff and I met serendipitously, and once I learned about the wonderful work of Livingston Philanthropies, we wanted to donate right away.” Donna Gallagher, another Saint Catherine’s Rosary Society member, joined Jacobsen at LPI “World Headquarters” (a.k.a. Friedman’s garage in Livingston) to deliver items for the homeless and profoundly poor.
