Our New Year's Resolutions for 2014

We've swept the confetti and picked up the balloons.

We've eaten our last Christmas cookie for about 11 months.

This morning, we had no holiday to observe—just driveways to shovel and trees to take down.

It's 2014. The holidays may be over, but that doesn't mean there's nothing left to celebrate.

Now we celebrate the ways in which we will make ourselves better this year.

What was your New Year's Resolution? Even if you don't make resolutions, what do you want to accomplish this year?

Do you want to get fitter? Find a better job? Learn something new? Spend more time with your family? Mentor Public Library can help you do all those things and more.

And, yes, we have some resolutions this year too. We want to create young readers, stimulate your imagination, satisfy your curiosity, connect you to the online world, and help you find and understand the information you're looking for.

We're also resolving to read more. (We are, after all, a library.) And we hope you join us.

Over at our Main Branch, some of us will fill out stars with our Reading Resolutions—that is, the names and number of books we resolve to read in 2014.

You're all welcome to post your Reading Resolution at the library too. These stars will decorate the Main Branch's first floor.

You could even win a prize. All you have to do is check out a young adult or adult book at Mentor Public Library and bring the receipt to the reference desk at the Main Branch. That will enter you into our “Reading Resolution Raffle.”

You have all of January to enter the raffle. The winner will get a $25 gift certificate from Barnes & Noble.
But our biggest resolution (this year and every year) is to help you be the best possible you that you can be.

So whatever you want to do this year, come to Mentor Public Library. We'll help you do it.
