Message from the Director: Just Add Friends

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Are you a town resident who wants to start your own book club but are daunted by the work involved?  Are you already in a book club but dreading your turn to lead?  Then we’ve got the perfect new program for you launching by the end of the month: Book Club in a Bag!  Each bag contains eight copies of one book and all the background information about, compiled by one of our own highly trained librarians.  You can keep the bag and its contents for up to 28 days. All you have to add is the friends!  View our first selections for Book Club in a Bag below, and for more information about the program, or about the Library’s own four adult book clubs, please check out our website at or stop by the reference desk.


Remember, at Livingston Library, we bring the world to you.
All the best,

Amy, Director – Livingston Library


Message from the Director: Hispanic Heritage Month

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Hispanic Heritage Month is almost over, but there’s still time to enjoy a wonderful, free live musical program at the Library on Thursday, October 12th. “The Viva Vallenato! Cumbia Band features the lively, unique sounds of timbales, bass, and above all, the button accordion which is so characteristic of Colombian music,” explains Christine Demidowich, our programming coordinator. “Don’t miss it!”

And if you’re looking for other ways to explore Hispanic music and culture, check out the Library’s World Language collection, our many Spanish-language films and magazines both in the Library and online through Hoopla! and Zinio, as well as our great online language learning programs, Mango and Rosetta Stone. Just ask one of our highly trained librarians for more information.

Because as St. Augustine once so memorably said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” At Livingston Library we bring the world to you.


All the Best,

Amy, Director – Livingston Library
