If you're going to do it, now's the time. With 2011 less than a month away, you can't put off making your New Year's resolutions much longer!
What will you promise yourself you'll do, or not do, in the next 12 months? Whether you're looking for resolution reinforcement or resources, check out the programs the Library has planned to kick off 2011!
Enjoy local talent
Central Ohio is bursting with ability, and you can find it at the Library! Don't miss the perennially popular February by the Fire music series that showcases area talent. Pianists Dan Rowan and Erik Augis and guitarists Tim Cummiskey and Delyn Christian will start the weekend off right on Friday afternoons in February.
Clinical psychologist and Otterbein University professor Noam Shpancer will treat you to a discussion of his book, The Good Psychologist, on February 2. Publisher's Weekly has described the novel as an "intelligent and suspenseful debut."
Help the Earth
If you're going to start a pro-planet plan in 2011, let the Library help you go green! On February 17, the series Increasing Biodiversity in Suburbia returns and, during this installment, you'll learn about gardening for birds, including recommendations on appropriate food and nesting sites.
Get answers about community supported agriculture (CSA) straight from the farmer's mouth during the February 19 program, Find Your CSA Here. Representatives from local farms will discuss CSA basics and what each offers members.
Do what you love
Take the world of freelance writing by storm after attending the next session in the library's Mark My Words writing series! On January 15, Sherry Paprocki, who has written articles for Preservation and InStyle magazines, will offer advice about breaking into the world of freelance writing.
Learn more about social entrepreneurship and how it's changing business and our lives during the February 22 program, Good Business: An Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship.
