Join Us for a

Summer Family Concert!


Livingston Library Community, 

We invite you and your little ones to celebrate summer as we sing and dance together during the Library’s Summer Family Concert featuring Play Date! Children of all ages and their caregivers are welcome to join us on Sunday, August 6 at 4pm.

During this interactive musical program, children and their families will be encouraged to use their imaginations through song, participating in a positive, creative, and empowering musical experience together.

Play Date’s original kid-friendly songs are infused with garage rock, dancehall, pop, americana, and pop-punk both children and their adult caregivers will love!





Strategic Plan Survey




Help the Library be sure its next chapter is a great fit for all who live, work and learn in town.  

The survey will take about 7 minutes to complete.
