Library as life coach

library news 16 resolutions image

A new year is on its way. I can’t believe I’m typing those words, because 2015 went by way too fast. All those things I wanted to accomplish? – they kind of slipped out the window while life pushed me ever-faster down the road. What about you? Did you accomplish all your goals? If not, you’ll find the newest issue of Library News particularly helpful. It’s arriving at homes now full of fun challenges for 2016. 16 of them, to be precise.

It’s time to regroup and rethink. The new year is the perfect opportunity for some self-reflection. It’s a milestone like a birthday, except that everyone goes through it together, like a collective makeover. And yet, new years resolutions are intensely personal. You are the only one who can make changes in your life. The library can be your life coach, supporting you and nourishing you in your journey.

Come along into the pages of a publication designed to motivate you for 2016. It’s going to be a fantastic year.
