Resolve to do more at the Library

Posted: Monday, December 26, 2011, 9:27 am

If you're going to do it, now's the time. With 2012 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 2012!

Save money

Not only did Cate Taylor slash her grocery budget by 60 percent when she lost her job in 2009, she's managed to sustain her saving streak for over two years. During the January 12 program, Couponomy, this local mom will discuss the best places to find coupons and deals and ways to stay organized. She'll also provide insights into how to bring it all together to maximize savings.

If you're planning to get an e-reader for the holidays, let the Library help you fill it for free! You'll learn how to access the library's e-book collection during eBooks: Check 'Em Out, hands-on workshops planned January 18 at Old Worthington Library and January 26 at Northwest Library. Registration is required.

Take better care of myself

If you struggle with overeating and binge eating, get strategies for success from Crista Gambrell, PhD, LPC, a clinician at the Center for Balanced Living. Presented in partnership with the Healthy Worthington Coalition as part of their Eat to Your Health series, Overcoming Overeating is planned on January 10.

Through lecture, demonstrations and some hands-on practice with punching/kicking bags, Worthington Police Department staff will show women ages 12 and up how to keep themselves safe. Two Self Defense 101 workshops are planned, January 23 and February 20, and both will include a discussion of situational assaults, incapacitating drugs and the use of weapons. Registration is required.

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 Dave Powers and Mark Flugge, the Sorelle String Quartet and Ukulele Cowboy Society will start the weekend off right on Friday afternoons in February.

Did you know that with a little planning you can grow a variety of vegetables nine months of the year? It's true! Learn more from Worthington resident Don Humphrey during the February 16 session of New Directions for Suburban Gardens.
