New Year's Resolutions in the Special Collections Department
With the shelves of every branch stocked with books to fuel a desire for learning and self-improvement, the library is your go-to location for New Year's resolutions. In addition to the things you can check out at a branch or online, you can find inspiration for the new year in the rare and vintage materials of the Special Collections Department.

Resolution #1: Get healthy.
Resolution #2: Lose weight.
Resolution #3: Live life to the fullest.
