Fight Cabin Fever!

winter twilightUh-oh…we knew it was going to happen. The cold of winter has arrived. And that accompanies the afternoons that too quickly darken into night.

So what to do? Why not take advantage of the cold, dark days and learn something new? On the third floor of the library we have a display of books for learning new skills. Maybe you have always wanted to learn to sew or knit. Do you want to improve your skills in investing? What about honing your ability to use all of those new holiday gifts: your iPad or iPhone or Surface? Or you could learn to build a deck or a plan a better garden.

And if you are interested in learning about animation or business skills or photography, there’s a high probability that Lynda.com has an instructional video among its library of nearly 3000 courses. (You will need a valid Syosset Public Library card to access both of these databases from home.)

Don’t just hibernate! Have fun learning something new and soon Spring will come!
