American Flatbread Kitchen Library Launch
205 Hudson Street, NYC 
Saturday, October 25
2:00pm-6:00pm (restaurant open regular hours)


Join us for the launch of this wonderful food-lover's library at American Flatbread Kitchen (AFB)! In an effort to launch a give-and-take library book exchange program for their community to enjoy, AFB is hosting a special event where guests will bring in old and used books that have meaning to them to support positive learning in an organic environment. The Library Launch event will give attendees the opportunity to donate children’s books to the AFB Library. This library will then continue to live on as an exchange – if you donate a book, you may take out a book. To further celebrate healthy eating and healthy bodies AFB has teamed up with Chef Telepan and Wellness in the Schools (WITS) for this special evening.
