I have an embarassing confession: my New Year's resolutions never last a month, much less a whole year. Still, I do think the New Year is a valuable time to reflect about what you like -- and dislike -- about your life. This year, instead of trying to make sweeping changes that will probably overwhelm me and doom me to failure, I'm going to start small. This year, I'm going to try to cook more and eat out less in an effort to eat more healthily and save money.
Luckily, the library has lots of great cookbooks to help me stay resolved!
The library's closed, but dclibrary.org is open 24/7!
All library locations are closed today, but there's myriad ways you can enjoy the library online!
