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 

A Super Smashing Afternoon @ the Livingston Library

The program room was full of genuine excitement, healthy competition and lots of Livingston High School students during the library’s Nintendo Switch gaming showdown on Thursday, January 17. Librarians Anna Coats and Katie Neylan paired up with the LHS Video Game Club to organize the after-school program, where participants played Super Smash Bros., skillfully unlocked characters, devoured snacks and socialized with each other.

Mark you calendars! Both Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart will be available to play in the library’s next gaming session February 21.

Remember, the library now lends video games for Switch, X-Box, and PS4. Look for them in the YA section by the Graphic Novels.
