Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Start 2016 out right by getting a library card

Amanda Mongolo

Have you made a New Year’s Resolution to get your body in tip top shape? Your library card gives you access to books on health and fitness, yummy cookbooks on the Paleo diet & Raw diet.

We’ve got workout DVDs from yoga to kickboxing and everything in between. Spent too much money over the holidays? We’ve got books on managing finances, credit repair, and saving for a rainy day.

Maybe you just want to relax and curl up with the newest bestseller. We’ve got those too! I challenge you to make a resolution to spend more time at your local library this year.
