This October we enjoyed some really fun and intellectual programs here at the Livingston Library! Below is a recap of what events took place this October. 

We got literary this month with an Open Mic Night featuring the poet Damian Rucci. Writers looking towards publication enjoyed a Literary Publication Crash Course taught by The Writer’s Circle

Those looking to get active and de-stress enjoyed our monthly all levels Adult Yoga Workshop and a workshop on Calming Practices for Stress Relief.

We explored our artistic side with our monthly librarian-led Crafterwork, drop-in Crafternoon, and instructor-led Adult Art Workshop: Design a Silk Scarf.  Adults and teens also enjoyed a Jewelry Making Workshop led by the Livingston High School Jewelry Club. Last but not least, our Hooks and Needles group resumed meeting this month after a summer break!

We enjoyed an afternoon of music with our Music Matters Concert with local musician Luba Vasilyeva.  Those looking for cinematic entertainment enjoined our evening and matinee screenings of our Movie of the Month, Asteroid City.  Attendees also enjoyed our cultural celebration Celebrate India which included crafts, refreshments, and henna! Seniors enjoyed our monthly Senior Happening with Rhonda Denet’s “Just Jazz.” 

We got techie this month with the tech class Answering Your Questions from Email to Google

Those looking to play games at the Library enjoyed our Drop-in Adult Gaming session in the Library’s program room. 

We also enjoyed our wonderful book club meetings! This month our Bookish Vibes book club met, which included an author visit with Susan Meissner. Our Thrilling Tales, Let’s Talk About Books, and Crime Time book clubs also met for lively discussions! 

We learned a lot this month! Attendees enjoyed many lectures including the health lectures Breast Health for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Understanding and Navigating Medicare, as well as the historical lectures  Murder, Mayhem, and Scandal in NYC and Stranger Cast an Eye: An Introduction to New Jersey’s Historical Burial Grounds.
