The Post-Holiday Season

Leave a comment

The holidays are over and that means one thing: the sun’s coming back! Hooray! Our glad tidings and gamboling have pleased the powers. Now’s the time to get happy again. Let some light in. Have some fun!

To this end, I’ve asked several people around the library what they consider worth doing during these cold winter months and what books they’d recommend to those ends. Here are their answers.

1635446I play a lot of Minecraft. If you’re under 15, you are already familiar with the novelizations. However, did you know that you could learn to program Python with Minecraft, too? It’s true! You can play a highly addicting game and become a master programmer at the same time. Because winter is for geeky pursuits.

1533085.jpgTatjana knows how to make the days merry and bright! A hearty winter cocktail will warm your winter in style. We’re not talking about your average appletini or margherita, either. If you’ve never had hot mulled cider, then it’s time to grab your mug and fuzzy socks.

1660151So you got a million sweaters during the holiday, but not one of them is in any way attractive or aesthetically appealing. Time to break out that dusty old sewing kit! Stitch your things up whimsically and revel in your victory over the gift-giving season.

1573321Sure, you’ve heard of this book, but have you taken it to heart? Tidying up really can change your life. Not only will you experience the bliss of a clean space, but you’ll have an extra few hundred dollars from all the change you’ll have found in your couch cushions.

862950Obviously, librarians are going to recommend that you catch up on your reading list. But if you’re all read out, to the extent that you can’t imagine a book that you haven’t read, what can you possibly do to continue reading? Librarian action figure Nancy Pearl has you covered, lustfully.

bingeLibrarians are not just about books. No, not by a long mile. Librarians are also about movies! But wait, librarian friend, I hear you say. I have no Netflix password, nor Hulu access. Alas, my life is a misery. I respond thusly: you haven’t been reading our blog. Binge away.

puzzleDid you know that the Nevins Library has an active jigsaw puzzle going in our fireplace room? It’s true! So now, in addition to books and movies and cleaning up and other snuggly winter pursuits, you can stop by and help us do our puzzle. And the next one too. And the one after that.

Aren’t the post-holidays wonderful?
