A pen, a LAPL library card and a list of new year resolutions

Get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions at the Central Library!

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get a library card, it’s easy to do. Directions on how to get your free library card are available here on the library’s new website: http://www.lapl.org/how-do-i#faq-12907

The Central Library also has countless free resources such as books, DVDs, e-books, audiobooks, databases, research guides and more to help you with your resolution to:

  • BE HEALTHIER

    For instance, if you are looking for resources on losing weight, here is a sample search that I did on the library’s catalog. The keywords that I used for the search were “WEIGHT LOSS.”

 

  • LEARN A NEW SKILL

 

  • GET ORGANIZED

 

  • START A BUSINESS

 

  • START A NEW CAREER
