New Year’s resolution program series at Polk County Library

Happy New Year from the Polk County Public Library! It’s January, which means it’s time to refresh and restart. The library is here to support you with a special event series at the Main Library in Columbus. Five resolution-themed programs will help you make positive lifestyle changes that will last through 2016 and beyond.

 

The program series kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 6, at 1 p.m. with a brown bag lunch and nutrition discussion led by health advocates Amy Clouse and Melissa Holland. Amy and Melissa will lead a discussion focusing on making healthy food choices and give tips on making your 2016 resolutions successful throughout the entire year. Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch to this event.

 

Other events include a budgeting seminar with financial advisor Matt Aldrich on Thursday, Jan. 14, 11 a.m.; a beginner yoga class with instructor Lisa Corda on Thursday, Jan. 21, 12 p.m.; tips on eating healthy without dieting with N.C. State Cooperative Extension Agent Jimmi Buell on Friday, Jan. 22, 11 a.m.; and a class focusing on natural health with essential oils taught by wellness advocate Jessica Orr on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 11 a.m.

 

The library’s Cookbook Club will have a “healthy eating” theme at their Jan. 11 meeting as well. The group meets on second Mondays at 12 p.m. Select a theme-related cookbook, prepare a dish from the book, and bring it to the meeting to share. Other upcoming themes include Asian in February and vegetarian in March.

 

Polk County Public Library has a Main Library in Columbus and a branch in Saluda, as well as outreach services. PCPL offers books, movies, music, audiobooks, downloadable ebooks and audiobooks, public computers, and wireless Internet access. To learn more, visit polklibrary.org.
