To piggyback on reference librarian Sandra Dreaden’s “happiness project” in a previous Check It Out, Jamie Mitchell visited Lap Sit to fulfill her New Year’s resolution.



I am delighted she chose to participate in Lap Sit with her 1-year-old daughter, Katie. Jamie, a local Realtor, said she enjoys her job’s flexibility.



I am sure her New Year’s resolution could double as a happiness project!



If you’d like to make this your happiness project, we have opportunities in the mornings for those with flexible schedules like Jamie, and in the evenings and on Saturdays for those with less flexible schedules.



Call 682-4432, come to the library or visit cityofcrestview.org/library.php for a full listing.

DULCIMER HOEDOWN, UPCOMING EVENTS



We will host a dulcimer hoedown Jan. 29. The Pelican Pickers will fill Warriors Hall with Appalachian, old-time and gospel music, playing Appalachian mountain lap dulcimers.



They augment their sound with banjo, mandolin, guitar, Irish penny whistles, fiddle, harmonica, Native American flute, recorder and silver flute.



The songs — most of which come from the 1800s or early 1900s — start at 7 p.m. and will end around 8:30 p.m.



Evening Library Time is designed for adults and children 5 years old and up. Bring a finger food to share. Registration is not required for this free event.



STAFF PICK
