Message From the Director: Lectures Available at your Leisure

Livingston Library Community, 

Do you miss attending the lectures hosted by the Livingston Public Library?  Try viewing one of our virtual programs! The Livingston Public Library’s Youtube Channel hosts lectures just like you would find in the library, but viewable at your leisure from the comfort of your own home.

This past Friday, our Youtube Channel hosted an art history lecture with Suzanne Altman.  You may remember Altman from her lecture that took place inside the library earlier this year on the Hudson River School.  Her latest lecture is titled The Art of the Dutch Golden Age,  and it is  absolutely fascinating!

This Monday, June 1, 2020 we will also have another lecture going live on our YouTube Channel.  Patricia Diesel, certified professional organizer and lifestyle coach will be presenting What’s in Your Closet: Ten Things You Can Toss Today. It’s going to be a wonderful talk on organization and will help you with spring cleaning! 

So stay tuned and follow our Youtube Channel.  I can’t wait to “see” you there!

Stay in touch, stay safe.


Message From the Director: Honoring Memorial Day

Livingston Library Community,

May 25, 2020 marks Memorial Day.

It’s a day that we pause to remember, thank, and mourn those who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. Military.  It is a day to be grateful for the freedom and privileges we have, and is perhaps even more poignant now given our current global situation.  Memorial Day weekends of the past used to be marked with family barbecues and large gatherings as we looked gloriously towards the upcoming summer months.  This Memorial Day weekend is a little bit different, to say the least, but it also allows us to pause and reflect on how lucky we truly are.

While reflecting this Memorial Day, enjoy a Patriotic Cello Concert performed by local cellist Randy Calistri-Yeh for the Livingston Library Community.  You can also enjoy this selection of books available through the Library’s digital collections, thanking and honoring those who have served in our military.
