A Message from
the Director

Enjoy a Film at the Library!


Livingston Library Community, 

Come sit back and relax as we enjoy the screening of current and trending films here at the Library!

On Thursday, November 30th at 2pm, join us as we show the film Barbie. During this movie, Barbie (Margot Robbie) and Ken (Ryan Gosling) are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.  

We are also excited to announce our Saturday matinee screening of Oppenheimer on December 2nd at 1:30pm.
