“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice” ~ T.S. Elliot

Livingston Library Community, 

With the start of a New Year comes a fresh start, a pivotal moment of personal growth and change, and the hope of a new beginning. I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to the hope of a new beginning that 2021 has to offer.  

On a personal level, with a New Year comes New Year’s resolutions, promises we make to ourselves to better our lives and allow us to transform into healthier and happier versions of ourselves.  No matter what your New Year’s Resolution is this year, your Library is here to cheer you on, empower you, and help.
