I am writing a document with Libreoffice Writer. I would like to set a part of it as read-only, while the rest of the document as non-read-only.

Is it possible to do it? How?

Yes, this is possible. You can insert a "section" (Menu Insert -> Section...) and set that section read-only:

The OpenOffice.org Wiki has more information about using sections for page layout.

In a nutshell: you can later toggle the protection through Format → Sections... and you can select a bunch of existing text when creating a section (that selection will be moved into the new section). –  njsg Mar 26 '12 at 14:02
