Do you have a New Year’s resolution that you would like some help with this year?  Don’t forget to check out the library’s collection of books and videos on topics such as diet, cooking, exercise, organization, parenting, and starting your own business.  

Speaking of New Year’s resolutions, do you know someone who might like to earn their GED?  The library offers GED classes led by Shari Cox of the Richmond Adult Education Center on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

There are six new bestsellers, two new children's books, and three other new books in our collection this week.  The new bestsellers this week include "Robicheaux: A Novel," "The Cruel Prince," and "The Wanted."

The art of Kate Wallace, a junior at Lincoln High School, is on display at the library this month.  Wallace’s pieces cover a wide range of subject matter, but all pieces display a skill and technique remarkable for such a young artist.  Library Assistant Beth Gwin remembers that Kate was extraordinarily gifted when she was a third grader in Mrs. Gwin's class.
