Message from the Director: Have a Heart

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Not only is Valentine’s Day upon us, February is Healthy Heart Month.  So there’s no better time for our upcoming program, “Living a Heart Healthy Life” with cardiologist Liliana Cohen, M.D.,  on February 13th!  Learn about heart attack symptoms and how they differ in men and women, recognize myths about preserving heart health, and find out about the choices you can make to keep your own heart healthy.  The presentation will be followed by a Q&A period.  The program is free and open to all, but registration is required.

This is just one of the many free informative, authoritative health lectures we’re presenting in partnership with the Summit Medical Group.  Other topics include how to improve your sleep naturally, a mindful approach to sleep, and understanding hearing loss.  In May, the Library will also be teaming up with the Livingston Township Health Department for a program on Lyme disease, so stay tuned for more information!

And remember, at Livingston Library, we bring the world to you.

 

All the best,

Amy

Director – Livingston Library

Message from the Director: Lunar New Year, Year of the Dog

 

Dear Livingston Library Community,

The Lunar New Year is coming right up, and your Library is ready to welcome the Year of the Dog with you!  We have a host of opportunities for patrons of all ages to learn about and celebrate the holiday. The youth services department is already adorned with children’s artwork from the Livingston Chinese School’s Sketch Class. From February 15th till the end of the month, we’ll be showcasing a beautiful exhibit of Chinese calligraphy and painting by artist Du Li in the glass cabinets at our entrance.  Near the cafe, adults will find displays of English-language books about China and new and popular books in Mandarin from our World Language Collection.  Best of all, we’ll be holding our first trilingual storytime on Tuesday, February 13th!  In this innovative program, children aged two to seven accompanied by a caregiver will enjoy stories and songs in Chinese, Korean, and English, and then make a New Year-related craft together.  (Space in the program is limited so make your reservation without delay.)  We can hardly wait for the Lunar New Year to begin!
