June Adult Programming Wrap Up

June was a month full of wonderful adult programs and events! Below is a recap of what took place at the Livingston Library this June. 

We enjoyed some fabulous virtual author talks this month. Readers listened to For the Love of Mars: A Human History of the Red Planet by Simthsonian Curator Matt Shindell and Psychological Thrillers and the Queen of Twists: An Author Talk with Frieda McFadden.  

We explore our creative sides this month with our librarian-led Crafterwork and Crafternoon events. Adults also enjoyed our Jewelry Making Workshop in partnership with the Livingston HIgh School Jewelry Club. 

This June we celebrated Pride with our Pride Month Workshop where we made rainbow mugs. We also enjoyed  the lecture Gay Pride: More Than a Parade.

Those interested in writing attended our Spark Your Creativity: Writing Workshop.  

We also enjoyed many book clubs this month including: Bookish Vibes book club and author visit with Mary Simses,  Let’s Talk About Books, Crime Time, and Thrilling Tales

June is also Brain Awareness Month! This month we listened to the health lecture Brain Health and Memory in partnership with RWJ Barnabas. 

Those looking to enjoy a film in the library’s program room were in luck! This month we hosted the Tuesday Night Movie: Showing Up and Movie of the Month: Anatomy of a Fall.

We also celebrated Juneteenth this month with a Juneteenth Film Screening and flag raising ceremony in partnership with Livingston’s Committee for Diversity and Inclusion. 

Those who need help with their technological devices took part in our Tech Help Walk-In where our technology staff answered questions. 

Those looking to enjoy musical entertainment attended our Music Matters concert where Susie Speidel performed “Broadway My Way!” Seniors enjoyed our June Senior Happening where BJ Adams presented “The Music of Motown.” 

Adult Summer Reading also began this month. Summer reading runs until August 5th. Make sure to stop by the Patron Services Desk for your summer reading passport and signup prizes! Be sure to visit our event calendar to save the date for all of the programs taking place in July. We hope to see you at the library soon!
