Message From the Director: Storytime Reimagined

Amy Director

“You can find magic wherever you look.  Sit back and relax all you need is a book!” – Dr. Seuss

Livingston Library Community,

Storytimes are often one of the first library experiences children discover that fosters a lifetime love for reading. Our children’s librarians miss having in person storytimes with our littlest learners. However, now you can bring the library storytime experience home to your little ones! The Livingston Public Library is excited to announce our Create Your Own Storytime program. Visit the library during our Browse & Borrow hours and stop by the “Create Your Own Storytime Display.”  Here you will find themed books, an activity sheet, and a scannable code for direct access to Amanda’s On Demand Little Listeners Storytime.  

Little Listener’s storytime is designed for preschool age children, but is something that the whole family can enjoy together! Create Your Own Storytime themes are constantly changing, so be sure to visit the display the next time you’re at the library!

We hope to be reading together again soon!

Amy, Director

Xtreme Readers Honors Black History Month

Attention 4th and 5th graders: did you ever read a book and loved it so much you couldn’t wait to talk about it with your friends?  If so, the Xtreme Readers book club is perfect for you. 

Register with your Livingston Library Card in the calendar on our website. You will receive an email with a link to join the Zoom meeting the day before the event.  We meet virtually on Zoom February 23 @ 6 PM.

In observance of Black History Month we are discussing the young reader edition of Dr. Ibram Kendi’s National Book Award Winning book, Stamped From the Beginning titled, Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You remixed by Jason Reynolds.  Once registered, you may pick up the book at the Patron Services Desk at the Library, or download a copy from eBccls in either the ebook or audiobook formats. 

I hope to see you there!

Happy Reading,
Gina Vaccaro, Head of Youth Services
