Many people see the New Year as a chance to set goals to work toward in the coming year. Here at the library, we want to help you achieve those goals! Need a quiet private place to study to ace your exams? We’ve got your back! Looking for books to fill out your reading list goal for this year? We’ve got you covered! Trying to work toward a healthier lifestyle? We can help you with that too!

Did you know that our meeting rooms are free for patron use and you can reserve them up to four times a month? Yep! Reservations are considered for organizations whose contact person is a Scott County Public Library cardholder in good standing, and who is 18 years or older. You can make a reservation through the library’s website or give us a call if you need assistance! Please make sure to review our policies to see if our meeting rooms meet your needs.

If you’re going back to school this year, taking a certification test, or just generally need a quiet place to work, our private study rooms are perfect for you! Study rooms are first come, first serve. All you need to do is visit the library worker at the Information Desk and ask if there is a study room available.

If your goal in 2023 is to live a healthier lifestyle, let us help you get started! We offer free yoga and Tai Chi classes every month that are suitable for every skill level. Chair Yoga is perfect for those who need a gentler approach and Energizing Yoga is great for those willing to try a bit more of a challenge in balance and flexibility.

When it comes to your health, you may also be looking for new recipes to cook this year. If so, make sure to register for our Cooking Through the Calendar class in January before it fills up! In this program you will learn and sample healthy recipes for the new year. Or if you’re looking for something more sustainable, check out our section of cookbooks! We’ve got hundreds of titles relating to cooking and health here at the library. Plus, don’t forget about the additional titles you can access for free on Hoopla with your library card!

Crafting, reading, learning a new skill or language, improving your health, academic achievements: no matter what your goals and needs are this year, let us help you at SCPL!
