Hannaford Helps Community Bags Support the Friends!

The Friends of the Hudson Area Library has been chosen by the Hannaford store on Route 82 in Livingston as the latest beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag program! This means every time you purchase a Hannaford Helps Community Bag at the Livingston Hannaford store during the month of March, the Friends will receive $1 to help fulfill their mission. The bags can be found at the reusable bag rack and various registers. By purchasing these reusable bags, you’ll not only be supporting the Friends, but also helping to eliminate waste by skipping the paper/plastic bag options at checkout. Sounds like a win-win!
