Inclement Weather Closing


If Hudson City Schools are closed…the Livingston Free Library will be closed.

If Hudson City Schools have a 2 hour delay…call the library to see if it is open for afternoon hours.

Cupcake Contest and Bake Sale

The support of the community for our cupcake event, held on October 1st, is sincerely appreciated. A great time was had by all who came. Eight bakers did an outstanding job perfecting and decorating their recipes. Those voting were seriously pacing and pondering before casting their ballots.

Our appreciation is extended to Green Acres Farm, Claverack Agway, Livingston Hannaford, JoJo’s Pizza, Miller’s Tavern, Lyceum Theatre, Holy Cow, and Bartalotta’s Farm for their generous support of this fundraiser. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the bakers this event was a success.

The remaining bakers included Julianne Fletcher with s’mores cupcakes, Cynthia Atkinson with lemon drop, Betsy Lyons with fluffer nutter frosted chocolate, Stacy Hermance with apple cider, and Cheryl Krein with inside out carrot cake. They all are to be applauded for a job well done.

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
