We are about three weeks into the New Year, which is a great time to check in with those new year’s resolutions! If you’re like a lot of people, they’ve probably been left in the dust for a while, but there’s no reason not to pick them back up and try again. We’re not so far into the year that you can’t get back on the ball!
Luckily, the library is here to help in January and all year long with books, tools, events, and resources to help you meet your goals.
One of the most popular resolutions any new year is to get healthier and more active. Yoga can be a great way to ease into fitness, and it’s also a fantastic way to relax and decrease stress. The Library offers several yoga programs throughout the year, including Kundalini, Vinyasa, and other kinds of yoga. You can also check out a Neulog Pulse Meter from our Science Tools collection to monitor and compare your pulse rates during rest and different types of exercise. Make it an experiment or a game!
If 2015 is the year you will finally write the Great American Novel, or any kind of writing, join the Emerging Writers workshops and meetups, which each take place once a month. The group offers a chance to connect with other writers, ask questions, and have a dedicated time and place to work on writing projects.
Let me guess: you decided to get more organized this year, but you can’t find the paper you wrote down that resolution on because your desk is such a mess. This Organize Your Home book list can help you clean up and keep up with organizing your home, office, finances, and all that clutter. With these books and tips, you’ll be able to unearth your desk AND cross the resolution off your list!
I’m always aspiring to learn new skills, and the library is a perfect resource. Not only can you find tons of how-to books and videos on the shelves and a ton of craft programs, but we also have circulating sewing machines available for aspiring sewists and Big Shot Die Cutters which can be used to make great paper accents for scrapbook pages. If you want to learn more tech-related skills, Gamestart classes are offered in topics like Minecraft Modding and 3D Art and Animation.
Whatever your resolution or goal, let the Library get you on track to make a strong effort, no matter what time of year it is!
