Book Club in a Bag

Have you ever had dreams of running your own book club but ended up overwhelmed instead? The Livingston Public Library is here to help! We offer a Book Club in a Bag service that is here to end your book club frustrations once and for all. Book Club in a Bag contains everything you need.. In each bag there are 8 copies of a single title, an author bio and discussion questions. Current titles include Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle, Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project (to name a few). Explore the full selection on our website at Just add some friends and get ready to host the book club of your dreams. This service is available to Livingston cardholders, and the bags can be checked out for 28 days.

Friends & cups not included.

Message from the Director: Feminist Fare at the Library


Dear Livingston Library Community,

“That’s why literature is so fascinating. It’s always up for interpretation, and could be a hundred different things to a hundred different people. It’s never the same thing twice.”― Sara Raasch, Snow Like Ashes

It is in this spirit that I am pleased to announce our new book club: Feminist Fare!  Please join us in reading and discussing books that focus on women’s rights and gender issues. Participants are encouraged  to share their thoughts and experiences while reading about women’s roles throughout history and across cultures. The books selected are inspirational, memorable, historical, and funny. All are  welcome.

The next meeting will be held on Thursday, October 11th, at 11:00 AM in the Library’s Local History Room.  The book selected for this gathering is Make Trouble by Cecile Richards. Subsequent meetings will be held on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of the selected book will be available at the Circulation Desk.
All the best,
