So this is the New Year…

2017

A new year often sees us making resolutions about things we would like to change or improve upon in our lives.  I personally have never been that great at keeping resolutions, so I have created several ongoing goals that I can gradually work toward.  New Year’s goals do not have to be new; they can be goals carried over from year to year to be tweaked and improved upon.  (Improve the improvements!)  New Year’s goal can be something as simple as trying or learning something new.  And part of achieving these goals is having the right mindset and being informed about the best way to achieve what you want.  Be realistic and don’t expect unrealistic results.  Do some research on what it is you’re interested in doing.

A good place to get the information you need is at your local library!  (In this case, the Denton Public Library.)  Even if you don’t have a library card, you are still welcome to come to any of our free classes and events or make use of our collection to find the information you are looking for.  And with a library card, you are able to not only check library items out, but also to access any of our free databases!
