Displays & Exhibits

For the month of September, the Livingston Public Library’s display case is exhibiting the luminous and exquisite glass works of Leonard DiNardo, a local artist.    His studio is at the Riker Hill Art Park in Livingston where he arrived in autumn 1985 and has been producing his magnificent works at that location ever since. “I love creating beautiful pieces. When you get involved with something so much, it becomes a part of your soul, the essence of your being” says DiNardo.    Glassblowing is an arduous process and something can go wrong at every stage, but for Mr Dinardo the rewards compensate for the disappointments and loss. “When you get a perfect piece, there’s just no other feeling like it.”

The Livingston Public Library welcomes exhibits and displays, which further the educational, cultural, intellectual, charitable and/or public service objectives of the Library. Exhibits and displays which incorporate books and other Library materials are especially encouraged.  The Library recognizes its role in nurturing local talent and culture and, therefore, extends its preference in scheduling exhibits and displays to local schools, civic and community groups and local artists.  The Library also encourages exhibits and displays by collectors, crafts people and hobbyists.  Other displays may be devoted to an aspect of community life, science, education, family life, local or other history, community accomplishments, national anniversaries or events, or traveling exhibits in various fields and areas of interest.

All exhibits are subject to the terms of the Livingston Public Library’s Exhibits and Displays Policy.

The Library has a lighted glass display case (H 15”; D 20”) by the entrance where the displays can last from 2 weeks to a month.  Scheduling for this is arranged several months in advance.

If you are interested to set up a display in the case or to have any sort of display anywhere in the Library, please complete the Request to Place or Erect an Exhibit/Display and submit it for advance review and approval to the Library. Your application must include photographs or samples of items to be displayed.

The Exhibits and Displays Agreement must be signed prior to setting up any exhibit or display.

Once the application is approved, you will be contacted to schedule specific dates.
