“Library for Me” is purposely designed for children with disabilities ages 5 and up. It is an inclusive, interactive, and engaging story time program for children of all abilities and their families! 

Registration for “Library for Me” is not required and is a recurring monthly event. This program is made possible through support from our wonderful Friends of the Livingston Library









Borrow, Plant, Grow!

The Livingston Public Library invites you to participate in our first ever Seed Library starting February 12th.
