NJ Makers Day

Are you excited for March 23?  We are! Do you know why? Because March 23 is NJ Makers Day!

NJ Makers Day is a statewide celebration of maker culture.  It allows for the exploration of new skills, facilitates community engagement, and provides learning opportunities for all ages! On this upcoming Makers Day, you can visit the Livingston Public Library between 1pm-4pm and for a making extravaganza!  From buttons makers to robotics and from astronomy to circuity, Makers Day has something for everyone. Joining us this Makers Day will be: The Morris Museum Astronomical Society, the Livingston Robotics Club, the Lancers of Livingston New Jersey, Imagine That!!, and many more.  

Makers Day is free and open to all, while a majority of the programs are aimed for grades 3 and above.  But we also have special activity for adults! Adults can register for a Cigarbox Story Book Diorama Workshop instructed by Creativity Caravan.  

So drop on in! We would love to see you there.

Message From the Director: Let the Gaming Begin!

Dear Livingston Library Community,

Here at the Library, we try to have something for everyone. That’s why last month we held our first Gaming @ the Library event for high school students grades 9-12.  This event, co-run by the Livingston High School Video Game Club and sponsored by the Friends of the Library,  provided high school students a safe and fun place to socialize after school.  Gaming @ the Library returns this Thursday, Feb. 21, at 3:00 PM for high school students in grades 9-12.  Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be played on the big screen and Mario Kart will be played on the two smaller side screens.

Be on the lookout for more Gaming @ the Library events, including Gaming for Grades 5-8 on Tuesday, April 16 and Family Gaming for all ages on Saturday, May 18 from 2-4 PM. In the meantime get your video game fix by checking out the latest games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and XBOX ONE, located in the Teen Zone.

All the best,
Amy
