We are a hopeful country. 45% of Americans make resolutions and only 8% are successful. 47% of those resolutions are about self-improvement or education. What better way to fulfill those resolutions, save money and spend time with family and friends than at the library?
The tradition of the New Year’s resolution goes all the way back to 153 B.C. and you can imagine that many of our resolutions today are similar to those earlier ones in ancient times. There are always the same, common, human desires about health, wealth and happiness: spending more time with our loved ones, spending less money, improving our health, our status and our minds.
In fact, some of the top resolutions of the past ten years were about getting fit, getting a better job, getting a better education, saving money and finding more time to be with family and friends. The City Library at 210 East 400 South can help you achieve success in all those resolutions.
