“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
― C.S. Lewis
Livingston Library Community,
Here at the Livingston Public Library we adore not only connecting readers with books but also connecting readers with other book lovers. Did you know that the Livingston Public Library offers a variety of virtual book clubs for all ages and interests? Whether you’re a child or an adult, enjoy reading science fiction or pop-fiction, there’s a book club and a group for you!
**The Livingston Public Library’s book clubs meet virtually on Zoom. Registration is required for these events and can be done so through the Library’s event calendar. An email with information on how to access the event will be sent to you the day before the program.**

Bookish Vibes is also looking forward to their May 6th meeting, where author Susan Wiggs will be visiting.
If speculative fiction is more your thing, you may find our Unstuck in Time book club of interest. Unstuck in Time meets once a month on a Tuesday evening at 7pm and revisits classic speculative fiction. The next Unstuck in Time book club meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 27th at 7pm. Attendees will be discussing Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.
