Hi blog readers,

The Livingston Library has two Rokus that come pre-installed with a Netflix subscription, generously funded by the Friends of the Livingston Library. Reserve them today at www.livingstonlibrary.org!
The Karate Kid is a popular movie from 1984, where Daniel (Ralph Macchio) moves to Southern California with his mother, Lucille (Randee Heller), but quickly finds himself the target of a group of bullies who study karate at the Cobra Kai dojo. Fortunately, Daniel befriends Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki “Pat” Morita), an unassuming repairman who just happens to be a martial arts master himself. Miyagi takes Daniel under his wing, training him in a more compassionate form of karate and preparing him to compete against the brutal Cobra Kai. Cobra Kai picks up decades after the tournament that changed their lives, with the rivalry between Johnny and Daniel reigniting.
