Resolutions: To Keep or Not to Keep? (That is the question)

Every year many of us deign to make New Years' Resolutions---but keeping them is an entirely different matter.  However, if you need some tools to help you stick to those resolutions, the library can help.

We have books for weight loss, health conscious cookbooks, and exercise DVD's to help you burn off those holiday party goodies. You might check out the Health Resources page on the library's website. Created in partnership with Fauquier Health, the Health Resources page offers links to credible sources for health related issues and lists of materials available for check out at the library.

Is your goal this year to get your affairs in order?  Check out Gale Legal Forms.  This handy online resource provides a wide selection of state-specific (and multi-state) legal forms across the most popular legal areas--and you can use it from your home or office computer. (Reminder: you will need a valid Fauquier County Library Card to access this database).  Or if you prefer books to online resources, the library has a wide selection of books that can help you plan your estate.

Not into DIY legal forms...so you need to find a lawyer instead?  The library offers the Martindale-Hubbel Legal Directory.  You can search for lawyers in your hometown, see where they went to law school, what types of law they practice, and read reviews.  

Maybe your resolution this year is simpler than planning your future or getting healthy. Maybe you just want to read more books, but don't know where to start.  The library's book clubs offer interesting reading and a pleasant environment to discuss the titles.  Simpler still, you could peruse the numerous bibliographies compiled by our well read librarians for some suggestions for reading.  Or subscribe to this blog for bestsellers and other popular reading supplied by library staff.

Whatever your resolution, the library is sure to have something to be of assistance.  And remember if you have difficulty finding it on your own, our librarians are always happy to help you whatever you are looking for.  Contact us via email, telephone, or stop in and say hello.

Happy New Year!
