We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. As we start 2016, many of us will make resolutions to kick off the new year. Stop by the Bay Village branch library to check out materials to get you started with your goals. If you plan to maintain a healthier lifestyle, we have a wide array of exercise DVDs, cookbooks, and fitness books to help you get on your way. Is decluttering on your list? We have plenty of books to help you organize your space. Or, have you joined a reading challenge? the library is the perfect place to help you reach your goal. If you need help finding or ordering titles either in the library or through our digital collection, please speak to a librarian.
