Livingston Parish Library Announces November 2021 Events | Livingston / Tangipahoa

0


In addition to book clubs and crafts, the library hosts several events of interest in November.

Library for all: The interactive program for adults with disabilities is open to anyone 18 years of age and over. The public is invited to join the folks at the Livingston Activity Center and their caregivers for the chance to color and watch a movie.

It will be at 9:30 am on November 2 at the Livingston main branch; and November 16 at the Denham Springs-Walker branch.

Learn about purple swallows at 10 a.m. on November 6 at the Denham Springs-Walker branch. Adults can hear Krista Adams of the Purple Martin Conservation Initiative provide information on migration, nesting, housing, and other interesting facts about this beloved songbird.

An interesting craft project, in time to start making Christmas gifts, is the Swiss Army Keychain for Adults 18 and Over. These key chains – without blades, simply crafted in the style of iconic knives – are cut on the library’s CNC cutting and engraving machine, which makes precisely cut pieces of wood and pewter. Participants will add some supplies for a project that keeps keys organized and in one place

Sessions will be held at 10:30 am on November 20 at the Albany-Springfield branch; 6 p.m., November 16, Denham Springs-Walker branch; 6 p.m., November 2, Watson branch; at 1 p.m. on November 12, in virtual programming.

For any programming, reserve a place by calling the specific branch or by visiting www.mylpl.info.
