Back to School Means Back to the Library & Summer Reading Wrap Up

We are excited to welcome back students and our after school crowd! Since it’s been awhile, we would like to let you know what to expect.

Our Library is open seven days a week (closed this Sunday & Monday for Labor Day) and following all current CDC guidelines. In addition, it is mandatory to wear face coverings to enter all Livingston Township buildings. That means that masks ARE REQUIRED to enter the library for everyone age 2 and older.

Students are invited to enjoy after school snacks and drinks outside on our terrace. Food and drinks are not allowed to be consumed in the library at this time.

As a reminder, children under age 12 require a parent or caregiver, age 16 or older, remain with the child, or in the library and be immediately accessible to the child, including during library programming. Children under age 7 require a parent or caregiver, age 16 or older, with their child in their line of sight at all times.

Unfortunately, our study rooms are not available at this time. We have increased our seating throughout the library and offer plenty of group and quiet study space to accomodate students.

On a different note, I thought you would like to know that we had an exciting summer of reading, in person programs, teen volunteer activities and fun!

Our Youth Summer Reading Program ‘Tails and Tales’ had the highest percentage of readers we have ever seen. Those participants read over 200,000 minutes! Families thanked us for the Kindness Challenges, stating that they had fun completing the activities together.

If you would like to receive the latest information on library happenings, I suggest you subscribe to our weekly newsletter. It’s sent out every Sunday afternoon; subscribe easily right from our website.

Please stop by the Youth Services Desk to say hi on your next visit. We look forward to seeing you and your families back in the library!

Best,
Gina Vaccaro, Head of Youth Services
