Get Prepped...

Mental Non-Sequitar is a strong point for me...so I think I'll indulge.
Savor a taste of something from the list below:

  • When was the last time you updated your resume? Whether you need to fine-tune an existing document or develop one from scratch, the libraries have a great online resource for tips on polishing your entrance into your next big move.
  • Feel like getting into shape for Summer? Who doesn't? Whether you're into low-impact exercise, intense sweat sessions or anything in between, the libraries have books and DVDs to meet your needs! Check out the following folks using the Catalog (type the name in the Search box, and select "author" from the dropdown):
     -- Leslie Sansone (Walk at Home programs)
     -- Jackie Warner (Circuit training, weights/strength)
     -- Jillian Michaels (Circuit training, weights/strength)
     -- Shiva Rea (Yoga)
     -- Kelly Coffey-Meyer (Pilates, body sculpting)
    ...you can also browse the shelf at your local branch looking for call number 613.7
  • Home foreclosures. Identity theft. Wills, estate, and probate. Lemon laws. These are real legal issues facing everyday people. Where can you get information to start off dealing with these? MCPL has a Law section under its "Research a Topic" link on the homepage. Here you'll find educational resources, referrals, and generic legal forms to put you "in control" of understanding and working within the law. This site offers legal information. MCPL makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information provided, but it must be evaluated critically by the user. MCPL does not provide legal advice, applying law to individual circumstances.  For legal advice, an attorney should be consulted.
  • Running late on that Spring cleaning project? Well, it's never too late! And MCPL can help you locate the proper place to donate your stuff! Check out Use It Again, a database put together by the county's Department of Environmental Protection . There are links to places accepting book donations, computers, electronics, and divers-n-sundry other miscellany. Give it a browse! It just may inspire you to start digging around the attic!
