New Year’s Resolutions: Home Improvement Can Start at the Library!

New Year’s Resolutions: Home Improvement Can Start at the Library!

December 28, 2022

Have you started making your New Year’s resolutions? If you are finding it difficult to formulate a plan, let Mid-Continent Public Library help you!

While many of you may set resolutions that focus on improving or maintaining healthy habits, sometimes the environment around us can play a huge factor in achieving those goals. Perhaps you’ve been meaning to turn your craft room into a personal gym, or maybe the way your kitchen is organized discourages making healthy meals. If these ideas sound familiar, perhaps your New Year’s resolutions should focus on home improvement!

While Mid-Continent Public Library can’t sell you devices or materials, we can share our knowledge. For example, we have an actual home improvement database, which can help find articles about how to make sure your home is modernized, how to help maintain the historical aspects of the house, or even how you can start renovating your home from scratch.

Perhaps your home improvement project includes the need to upgrade certain household appliances, which can be confusing when trying to compare what fits your needs as well as your budget. MCPL can help! The Library offers resources such as Consumer Reports to help you select the materials/appliances you need. Home improvement can sometimes also mean the outdoor portion of your home, which can seem daunting, but don’t worry at all. You can learn about how to upgrade your garden and your gardening skills using MCPL’s online resources as well!

You may be someone who is more visually oriented and needs a physical book copy in their hands to learn, so keep in mind that MCPL also has a great selection of books to offer as you complete your home improvement projects for the New Year! You can find all kinds of how-to books, as well as the “For Dummies” series. If you need ideas to get started, check out this list!

Don’t forget, there are even programs that Mid-Continent Public Library offers to teach you about home improvement and gardening. Click here to discover a fun program at your closest branch! As you can see, there are hundreds of possibilities awaiting you as you research how to implement your home improvement New Year’s resolutions. So let us help you achieve your goals!
