Message from the Director: Curiouser and Curiouser

Dear Livingston Library Community,

It’s almost Valentine’s Day.  What better time to see Alice, the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and, of course, the Queen of Hearts?  On Saturday, February 10th, the Library will present “Alice in Wonderland,” a free public performance by Paper Mill Playhouse Children’s Theater on Tour.  All of the players are talented young actors and actresses, ages 10 to 13, who are chosen and trained by the renowned Paper Mill to perform for young audiences around the state.  So if a child in your life could use some music, dancing, fantasy, and fun in the dead of winter, don’t miss this opportunity!  No reservations are required, but we do suggest early arrival for parking.  Sound too good to be true? Not at all; as Lewis Carroll himself once wrote, “so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.”

At Livingston Library, we help you give your children the world.

 

All the best,

Amy

Message from the Director: How-To Houseplants

Dear Livingston Library Community,
The poet Shelley once wrote, “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”  But most of us need the occasional reminder, which is why houseplants are so cheering at this time of the year.  This is the perfect moment for our upcoming program on Sunday, January 28th, at 2 pm, “How-To Houseplants” with Marc Zukovich, a professor of horticulture who calls himself “the Garden Coach.”  Not only will Marc discuss the range of common houseplants, how to care for them, how to treat pests and diseases, and answer audience questions at the end, he’ll remind us all of the green season ahead.  This program is the first of our new series, Know Your Garden, which will include presentations on eco-friendly lawn care in March and dependable perennials in May.  In the meantime, the Library also has a lovely collection of gardening books and magazines.

Till then, stay warm and enjoy planning for spring!

All the best,

Amy
