Livingston Public Library: August Adult Programming Recap

September 2, 2022

We had wonderful virtual and in-person programs for adults during the month of August. Here is a little recap of what happened at the Library this month!

We started the “Dogs Days of Summer” with a conference on How to speak dog: Beyond sit and lie down. Here we have learned to communicate better with our four-legged friends. But dogs weren’t the only creatures in our August lineup. We also enjoyed the program A peek into the hivewhere local beekeeper Lior Shliechkorn gave us insight into the complex world of the hive.

Those interested in astronomy enjoyed a virtual lecture on The Incredible Science of the James Webb Telescopewhere participants were able to ask Modhumita Sabata, Principal Systems Engineer at the Space Science Institute, questions about the telescope!

Those looking to get crafty also enjoyed our drop-in craftsmanship DIY group. We also enjoyed the instructor-led craft Art workshop for adults: Create a seascape in watercolor.

Do you like using vinegar in the kitchen? Participants in our Veingear Herbal Workshop have designed their own unique herbal vinegar blends to use in their summer kitchen!

Those wishing to enjoy an afternoon film join us in the library program room for our Weekends with the Oscars. It was wonderful to enjoy an Oscar-nominated movie with friends, while beating the summer afternoon heat!

We wouldn’t be a library without books! Readers gathered to discuss Ellen Feldman’s The Living and the Lost during our Bookish atmosphere book group meeting. Ellen Feldman also joined us on Zoom! We were also happy to celebrate the launch of never say invisible by the late local author Jeremy Schreiber.

Summer reading for adults completed in August. 100 adults have read more than 324 books! Adults were also able to take part in our long month Livi Cares Adult Volunteer Club where adults wrote letters to send to elderly people who lacked a smile through the organization Letters Against Isolation. We collected 40 letters!

Be sure to visit our events calendar to see what fun and engaging events we have planned for September.

See you next month!
