Livingston Reads with Andy Weir's
Check out the Livingston Reads book, The Martian, and a host of programs at local libraries at LivingstonReads.org
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.
Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Parenting Awareness Month
March is Parenting Awareness Month. To highlight the importance of effective parenting throughout a child’s life, Carrie Shrier, a Michigan State University Extension Educator, will present three free programs at the Brighton District Library. These programs are generously funded by the Friends of the Brighton District Library.
“As a society we all benefit from effective parenting,” said Carla Sharp, head of Youth Services at the Brighton District Library. “Engaged parenting promotes the idea that everyone in a community benefits from parent education. It also encourages the development of parent and caregiver networks and support,” said Sharp.
