Warm up to winter with us!

Winter in CNY can be long and lonely for some, but we hope to change that and embrace the season with our new series Warming Up to Winter. This special series will explore the ideas and practice of Hygge ("hue-guh") a Danish concept encompassing coziness, comfort, and feelings of wellness and contentment. January through March the library will host small group meet-ups, hands-on learning opportunities, and movies. Together we can banish the winter blues and celebrate the warmth and joy of community.
