So how about a Library based resolution? My friend did the 52 book challenge. Reading a book a week. I do believe she was successful. I think, though, some took more than a week and some less, but by the end of the year she had done it. That mayΒ  be too ambitious, but you can use any parameters you wish. How about reading some Pulitzer Prize winners from years past? Whatever your choice may be, we at the Library would be happy to help you achieve your goals. I will leave you with this beautiful poem by William Ward

β€œAnother fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
”

~William Arthur Ward~
