Livingston Free Library Closings Due to Inclement Weather

To see if the library is closed due to inclement weather, check the radio or television to see if Hudson City Schools are closed. If the school is closed for the day, the library will be closed.

If there is a 2 hour delay in the opening of Hudson City Schools, please call the library (518-851-2270) to see if the library is opened for their afternoon hours.

Home Organizing and Downsizing Talk

After a long winter it is time to open the windows and start some spring cleaning. Julie Ulmer, a native of Columbia County who has had a business as a home organizer since 2003, will give a talk on helpful hints on getting more use of your time by having a more organized home. Part of this discussion will also cover suggestions if you need to downsize due to combined households or perhaps are cleaning out an estate of a relative. It is often difficult to decide what to keep, sell or donate.

The talk will be on Thursday, March 19th at 7pm at the Livingston Town Hall which is located at 119 County Rt. 19. If you have any questions, you can call the library at (518) 851227.

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.

Library Book Club

The Livingston Free Library Book club meets at 11 AM on the first Wednesday of the month at the Livingston Town Hall. Due to the success of the book club, they had to move to a space that was larger than the library. For more information, contact any of the Library staff, or Julianne Fletcher.
