Reserve a Study Room

Quiet study rooms are intended for collaborative work, short meetings, quiet study, and research by individuals or small groups of up to four. 

Visitors with a library card may reserve a quiet study room for up to two hours and up to a week in advance. There are three Study Rooms available for reservation at the Livingston Public Library. 

There is an additional group study room available for minors is the Youth Services wing. This room is available on a walk-in basis.

Take Part in Our Library

Presenter Submission Form
All presenters and performers who wish to engage with the Livingston Public Library must fill out an online booking request form. Due to overwhelming interest and limited availability of our Program Room, we can only reach out to candidates of interest.
Submit Inquiry
Indie Submission Form
While the Livingston Public Library welcomes submissions from independent authors, we purchase independent books very selectively. We are most likely to purchase books of significant local interest or which have received media attention.
