January is National Hobby Month. If you do not have a hobby (or need a new one) I have a few suggestions. The DeKalb County Public Library offers a variety of programs throughout the year. For example, the Crochet Group or the Quilting Workshop would be perfect for those who are a little crafty or just want to learn. You might say “I am not a crafty person.” Well, did you know the library is offering Symphony in Your Neighborhood? This program brings the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra to your neighborhood for free. Meaning you do not have to sit in Buckhead traffic to experience the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. What if music is not your thing? Are you a reader? Well, the library has book discussion groups for you avid readers. Did you know that the library also has a program for those of you who would like to learn a new language? The International Café meets once a month so that you may practice your Spanish skills. Okay, so none of this has sparked your interest? What about movies? The library has a New Movie Series where we show recent movies. And how about taking a free yoga class? For more ideas, you can also check out the book Get a hobby!: 101 all-consuming diversion for any lifestyle by Tina Barseghian.
