Happy New Year and Welcome 2012!

The Orange County Library System is delighted to kick off the New Year with a special series called Parenting with a Purpose. Throughout the month, the library will be offering programs that focus on various parenting topics--everything from home schooling to healthy dining for picky little eaters. All 15 libraries will be hosting programs so Moms and Dads please join us at a location near you.

If one of your New Year's resolutions is saving money, you're in luck. The Friends of the Library will be holding a half-off sale in their Bookstore this month. You'll find amazing bargains on all genres. Members of the Friends enjoy an additional 10 percent off plus admission to the preview sale. If you're not already a member, this is a terrific time to join. Start your year with a sound investment and please become a Friend today. Annual memberships start at just $15.

As we start the year full of hope and optimism, I leave with you a favorite quote of mine. It comes from Benjamin Franklin who said, "Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man." Happy New Year!
