"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending" - Carl Bard

While I could go on and be sentimental about what happened (and not) in 2016, isn’t it time for a fresh start, a new beginning and a New You?

New Year’s resolutions are great to make, but extremely difficult to maintain.  

They take effort and dedication.

This year, allow the library to come to your aid. We can help you achieve your 2017 resolutions.

Our “New Year New You display” on the 4th floor contains a variety of books for checkout. Topics include: fitness, health, nutrition, organization, self-help, and wellness.  

And, the price is right.  Free!
