Keep Your Resolution with the Help of the Library

Fitness, education, new hobbies and more

The New Year means New Year’s resolutions. Many people resolve to get fit, save more money, find a new job or learn a new skill or hobby. But they often find it’s hard to keep resolutions because they don’t have the support from others or the finances to do so. The Kenton County Public Library can help people keep their resolutions without spending a dime and provide the support system you need.

The economy is tough and sharp computer skills are a must in today’s job market. All three branches offer a variety of computer classes, including how to setup your computer, using basic Microsoft, the Internet for job searching, excel and email. There are even classes on how to use E-readers, Ipods and Ipads and staying up on the latest social media tools. The Library also offers specific job-skill classes like resume writing. The Erlanger and Durr branches also offer free GED classes. This makes it easy to resolve to finally get that high school diploma.

Spending more time with family is easy through free family programming at the Library. Movies, storytimes, craft programs and Puppy Tales are great activities for children.

The Library can even help people with their health through Diabetes Support group, a walking group and healthy living classes. Many people enjoy working out at home with a video but aren’t sure what they will enjoy. They can check out a few workout DVDs and books to see what they like before purchasing something.

A lot of people are looking for a hobby and to meet people with similar interests. The Library offers several themed book clubs, movies and fitness for seniors, knitting classes, open crafting, scrapbook by the month and writing workshops. We even have a class on Time Management coming up.
