Message from the Director: Understanding Hearing Loss

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Helen Keller once famously said, “Blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people.”  So if you or someone in your life is becoming hard of hearing, don’t miss our free public program,  “Understanding Hearing Loss” with a physician and an audiologist from the Summit Medical Group. You’ll learn all about the anatomy of the ear, the intricate workings of our sense of hearing, and find out about the most advanced surgical practices and technology for treating hearing loss at any age.

“Understanding Hearing Loss” is part of our recent new series of health and wellness programs.  At the Library we recognize that there are many different kinds of literacy, and medical literacy is more complex and more important than ever in the modern age.  Registration is required for this program.  Call 908-277-8889 or sign up online.

And remember, at Livingston Library we bring the world to you.

 

All the best,
Amy

Message from the Director: Humans vs. Zombies

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Remember how stressful test-taking was as a teenager?  Staying up late nights studying and being drained by the end of exams?  Were you…drained as a zombie, perhaps?

Well, after their AP exams last week, Livingston’s teens get to let loose and enjoy having the Library all to themselves on May 19th for our amazing after-hours Humans vs. Zombies program.  Our teen librarian, Karen deWilde, and our dedicated Teen Advisory Board are busy creating a post-Zombie apocalyptic wonderland out of the darkened Library.  Teens grade 9-12 will split up into humans and zombies, use teamwork and strategy to survive…and win the game.  For added fun, they will be making zombie-inspired treats out of rice krispies and chocolate.  Yum!  Now those are some brains anyone might want to eat!

 

All the best,
Amy
