Read On! New Year Goals

Welcome to 2020! As you begin to tackle your New Year Goals list, don’t forget that your library can make your goals easier and less expensive to accomplish. We have too many resources to list here, so if I miss one of your goals, let us know and we’ll be happy to help you find you what you need. 

If you’re aiming at improving your health we’ve got you covered. We have a plethora of cookbooks, some good workout books and DVDs, books about mindfulness and meditation, and more. We also have materials that focus on specific medical diagnoses that may require lifestyle modifications. 

Want to learn a new language? Check out our Mango resource online (or via the app). With more than 70 languages to choose from, you’re bound to find something of interest. 

If you’d like to learn a new skill, check out our DIY resources online – “Home Improvement Reference Center” and “Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center” – and our selection of books on everything from knitting to deck-building. Also, keep an eye on our events for adults the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM for workshops on various DIY topics. 

Organizing and decluttering are always part of my new year goals, so I’m finding inspiration in our nonfiction collection (specifically in the 648s) with books like “Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter & Organize to Make More Room for Happiness” by Gretchen Rubin. 

Of course, we also have plenty of materials through our physical and digital libraries to help you with even the most ambitious reading challenges! Our Books & Brews Book Club from 1 – 3 PM the first Saturday of the month at Fat Toad Brewing is a good place to go to find new books to read and a friendly group of people with whom to discuss them. We’ll be discussing “Fated” by Benedict Jacka at our next meeting on Feb. 1, 2020.
