“Eat your veggies. They’re good for you.” This infamous phrase likely brings back memories of dinner table stand-offs. For many of us, doing what’s good for us doesn’t come easy, and dare I say, isn’t always enjoyable. Why can’t we just choose to do things that are both good for us, AND enjoyable?

We have more than twice as many volunteers as staff. Without their help in nearly every department, our library would be a very different place. They do far more than just shelving. Volunteers make many of the programs and services you love possible. Now they are helping us to expand our library so that we can offer you even more.

Winter has truly arrived. It’s a great time to read some of those books you’ve been meaning to get around to. That’s what I plan to do, and I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this post on the library blog, you may have similar plans. I know that my co-workers certainly do. I’ve lost count of how many of them so far just this season have said, “On days like this, I’d rather be home enjoying a good book.” For all of us who find ourselves absorbed in a great read from time to time, those words have likely crossed our lips in one iteration or another more than once. Few experiences are more comforting during our long winters.

I’ve long been intrigued, as well as annoyed, by the power of habits. Good habits keep you on track toward your goals (until they get derailed), and bad habits can be depressingly hard to break, as anyone with an addiction to tobacco or TV or cat memes knows. So, I decided to try to create some habits of my own, to see how hard it really was.

Do you work? Whether your answer to that question is “Way too much” or “Of course, but I wish I didn’t,” I strongly suspect it’s something in the affirmative, because we all work, one way or another. You might work in the home, or in the office, or in the field, or in the forest, or… you get the picture. But you work. And whether you enjoy it or not (I sincerely hope the former), there are tons of resources out there to make your working life more manageable. And…drumroll… many of these resources can be found at your Library!

The Library is all about creating opportunities to learn. But what if you want to grow your knowledge base without having to rely on an actual, physical building? For those of you who like to learn late at night or in the convenience of your own home, or wherever the Library building itself cannot follow you, I present a wonderful, free resource: MOOCs!

 When I moved to Sandpoint seven years ago, I knew that I wanted to contribute to the community in a meaningful way. Volunteering seemed like a good way to do that. Because I didn’t know anyone here, I initially went online to search for local opportunities. That didn’t produce any viable options, so, not sure where to search next, I headed for the library to ask for their help.
