Message From the Director: Access Your Favorite Magazines Digitally with Overdrive / Libby

Amy Director

Do you enjoy reading magazines digitally either on the go or at home from your mobile device? You may have previously enjoyed reading magazines through the platform RB Digital, however, the digital magazines that you love will now be moving over to Overdrive.  

Overdrive is the same platform the Livingston Public Library and BCCLS consortium use for ebooks and audiobooks. This means that you can browse, download, and read digital magazines, books, and audiobooks all from the same platform.  You can access Overdrive through the browser, here, or you can download the Overdrive app called “Libby,” from the Google Play or Apple store.  

Reading digital magazines has never been easier and you have a catalog of over 3,000 titles to choose from! Magazine borrows are simultaneous and there will never be a wait time for a specific title or issue. 

Here are some top titles that you can look forward to reading through Overdrive: 

  • US Weekly
  • National Geographic
  • Sports Illustrated
  • Vanity Fair
  • Rolling Stone


Happy borrowing!    
Amy, Director

Message From the Director: Write it On Your Heart That Every Day is the Best Day in the Year

Amy Director

Livingston Library Community, 

The Livingston Public Library is excited to announce the third year of it’s popular take home Reflective Journaling program.  Once a week starting on Monday, January 4th, a new reflective journaling sheet will be available for you to complete at your leisure.  Reflective journaling sheets can be found in person at the library or digitally on the Library’s blog. 

The 2021 Reflective Journal is a place for you to reflect and have fun!  Each week’s journaling sheet contains a different prompt from reflecting upon your goals for 2021 to playing some fun library-esc trivia. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to get creative and try something new.  At the end of the year you will have a completed journal of your thoughts and experiences. 

To kickoff the program, the Library will be hosting a virtual Cover Crafting program this week.  If you were unable to register for this program, stop by the Help Desk during the Library’s Browse & Borrow hours, where card stock and a binder ring will be provided so you can create a cover with additional materials you have at home.  

Let’s make 2021 the most reflective and fulfilling year yet!


Best,

Amy, Director
