The holidays are over, and everyone seems to be getting back to normal workweek routines ... whatever form they take in these post-pandemic days. In the midst of all this, we may neglect to take care of ourselves. And that's the theme of this message: health and wellness.

Along with notes about upcoming health-related events, and some relaxing reading recommendations, please check out the "Did you know about our Wellness Kits?" section. It provides information on care kits designed to help people in our community who might need them.

Earlier this week, TAPintoHoboken ran a feature about the renovation of our third floor. Links to the article are under the Books for Children section, which is fitting as it's the new children's (and teens) rooms that are pictured in the article. We are excited to welcome everyone into the new space this spring.

And Happy New Year! Lunar New Year, that is. Starting on Friday, January 20, we have several fun events celebrating The Year of the Rabbit. Enjoy!
