My Favorite Albums of 2018

This was a superaltive year for music, particularly by female artists such as Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves and Cardi B, who made many music critics' top of albums of the year lists.  While my list is still mostly female-centric (well done, ladies!), I tend towards the indie and depressive in taste.  Below are my five favorite albums of the year, definitely worth checking out whether you share my lugubriousness or not:

Reading Recommendations for Winter Reading Challenge

Have you signed up for the inaugural Winter Reading Challenge yet? If it doesn't sound familiar, take a look at Elizabeth's blog here for more details. Registration opened up on Sunday, December 9,  and there are different challenges for youth, teens, and adults. A couple of the challenges on the adult list are to "check out a cookbook and try out a new recipe" and "read a winter themed book". If you're looking for inspiration in those categories, I've compiled some suggestions that fit the bill below.

Keep it Local: Local History Files

The Dundee Library has a collection of local history files that contain over 400 items, including: newspaper articles, photographs, documents/reports, correspondence, booklets/pamphlets, blueprints, maps, and more. We have gone through and digitized the entire collection to further preserve these items and make them more accessible to our patrons. The collection covers a variety of different topics pertaining to all/each of the communities in our district.

Book Clubs: Bringing Readers Together

Do you absolutely love to read books? Are you always looking to talk to people about what you read? If you said yes to either of those questions, then you should consider joining or even starting your own book club! A book club is a group of people that meet regularly to discuss books they have all read. Generally book clubs meet monthly, and each month a new title is selected. Then everyone reads the same title and gets together to discuss it. Book clubs are great because you get to meet all kinds of fun, interesting people and you get to read a wide variety of books.

Tai Chi @ Dundee Library

Looking for a new way to relieve stress and stay fit this winter?  Attend our Monday night Tai Chi classes at the library which start at 6 PM. Tai Chi (TIE-CHEE) is a Chinese marital art with a series of slow, focused movements that are accompanied by deep breaths.  Once developed for self-defense,   Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise now mostly practiced for its fitness and relaxation benefits.  Instructor Jarett Sanchez leads an hour long class including joint warmups, standing Qi Gong (CHI-GUNG), and Tai Chi mechanics and movements.
