It seems that another year is coming along, rudely shoving the old one aside. Poor old 2011. But, no time to dwell on the past, time to think about the future! To that end, I collected resolutions from the library staff to share with you. Here is what we are resolving to do next year (besides continuing to be an awesome library):
"My resolution is to run at least 3 times a week!"
Cheryl, Youth Services
"How about a twist on the old Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil : Hear No Gossip, See No Faults, Speak No Unkindness"
Pat N., Youth Services
"I resolve to read at least one book on quantum mechanics cover to cover – even if it’s from the 2nd floor children’s collection."
Steven, Adult Services
"My resolution (yet again) is to pursue more spirituality in my daily life and do yoga three times a week. "
Heather, Head of Public Information
"My New Year's Resolutions are as follows: to create a workable financial plan and to spend less time watching television."
Lynn, Adult Services
"Eat more vegetables (though I draw the line at asparagus)."
Laura, Adult Services
"My resolution is to take a noncredit continuing education class at Oakton Community College. Introduction to Quickbooks, or Texas Hold'em Poker!"
Cathy, Adult Services
"I will give a big effort to keep up with the variety of new technologies advancing in 2012."
Pat H, Youth Services
My resolutions are to exercise more, sleep more, read more, learn more, and find that magical 25th hour in the day to do all of this!
