Happy New Years!

Kings and Queens Social Club

New Years is a time for reflection. 

What are the events of the past year, of your life? Is now a time for New Years Resolutions?

I promise to lose weight

I promise to be a better co-worker

I resolve to be a better librarian

I will build a better collection

Okay, so three out of the four are realistic. New Years has always been a time of retrospection. 2013 was not such a bad year.

2014 will be the year you write your book, or finish a research project. It is a time to assist others in the community and clear out files and purge books. This could be the year to join the Denver Public Library Friends group and to think of the DPL in your estate planning.

2014 will be a terrific year as we all rub along and help each other become the component parts of a better library and system.  Welcome 2014!
