Message From the Director: Explore the Library’s New “Indie” Collection!

Livingston Library Community, 

The Livingston Public Library is pleased to announce its new Indie Collection! Located in new adult seating area, the Library’s Indie Collection includes books published through small press and independent publishers, as well as by self published local authors. 

A couple of the titles you can borrow from the indie collection include Mapless by New Jersey spoken word poet Erin Anastasia, which delves into the navigation of life from the end of romantic partnerships to navigating the job market, and Doll Palace by Sara Lippmann, a collection of short stories filled with characters who all share conflicting desires and internalized struggles.  This new collection will make it easy for our readers to discover the latest books that may not get the publicity of mass market titles. We hope that this new section will encourage you to expand your reading horizons and discover interesting new authors. 

The collection is growing and new titles are continuously being added, so be sure to browse the collection the next time you visit the Livingston Library!

We would also like to invite you to participate in a video that the Livingston Public Library is creating for National Library Card Sign Up Month. To participate in our 2021 Community Video Project, record a short clip, filmed horizontally, answering the following question:

“What is your favorite thing to borrow with your Livingston Library Card?” (Ex.  Books, eBooks, Audiobooks, Digital magazines, movies, museum passes, something from our Library of Things, etc.)

If you have a specific memory of a time you used your library card, share that too! Email or share your video to livisocial@gmail.com by September 6th.

We will compile the video clips together showcasing the Livingston Library Community! The video will debut on the Library’s YouTube Channel.

Best,

Amy Babcock, Director
