“History can only teach its lesson if it is remembered.” – Jason Reynolds
Livingston Library Community,
The Livingston Public Library prides itself in hosting a variety of book clubs for readers of all ages and interests. If your 4th and 5th graders are looking for a book that they won’t be able to put down, the Livingston Public Library invites them to join our X-treme Readers Book Club on Tuesday, February 23rd at 6pm. X-treme Readers meets virtually on Zoom and is the perfect place for readers in grades 4 through 5 to bond over their love of reading while discussing a specific book.
In observance of Black History Month X-treme Readers will be 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. Following registration, you are invited to pick up a print copy of the book at the Patron Services desk in the library. You can also or download a copy from eBccls in either the ebook or audiobook formats.
Registration can be done through the Library’s event calendar, here. An email with information on how to access the Zoom meeting will be sent to you the day before the event is to take place.

I agree completely History should be remembered. People fighting to live normal everyday lives can’t remember. Even journalists with all their footage from the past forget. For example, Hunter Biden was being sharply criticized for spending time in Ukraine when dad was a VP. When 9/11 happened, a plane full load of people arrived from Saudi Arabia to USA including George W Bush brother. What were they doing in SA? Providing energy consultancy to the Kingdom?
