Message from the Director: Financial Literacy for the Win!

Dear Livingston Library Community,

March is Women’s History Month, and what better time to consider attending a free financial workshop for women?  On Wednesday, March 21st, the Library will be welcoming Debbie Taylor, a CPA, attorney, and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, for a free public presentation, “Empowering Women.” Debbie won’t be delivering any sales pitch for her own services or any financial products; instead she’ll be discussing the three primary challenges of planning for women–longer lives, lower wages, and less self-confidence in investing–and how to overcome them!

If you like “Empowering Women,” don’t miss “Taking Control of Your Retirement” on May 10th, and “Investment Principles for Women” on June 9th. These programs are part of our exciting new series, “It’s Your Business.”

Because here at the Library we promote literacy of all kinds–and we know financial literacy is the bottom line.

All the best,

Amy

Director – Livingston Library

Message from the Director: Ready, Set, Create!

Dear Livingston Library Community,

On Saturday, March 10th,  get ready for robotics demonstrations, interactive LEGO crafts,  fun with electrical circuits, and encounters with a mysterious SLIME!  Yes,  it’s the Library’s third annual Makers Day,  and we could hardly be more excited to be celebrating it along with a host of other libraries, schools,  museums,  makerspaces, and other community locations across the state.

Here at the Library we love the philosophy of “maker culture”: exploring the world through all things related to tinkering,  experimentation,  and creation.  And though we’ll always deeply cherish our books and other print-based resources, we’re happy to supplement our collections with a Library of Things,  which includes portable makerspace kits (our Ready, Set, Create! Toolkits) and other lendable items such as mobile hotspots,  pre-loaded Nooks,  sewing machines,  and telescopes.

We welcome you and your families to join in the fun!  No registration is required,  but do come early for parking.

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

 

All the best,

Amy
