Memorial Hall Library is offering a whole year of opportunities for all ages to experiment with time away from screens and digital devices. Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World, the New York Times bestselling book by Cal Newport, will guide us. Many of us read books on digital devices, but spending too much time on social media, news updates, gaming and surfing the internet can drain internal resources and rob us of valuable time.
We hope you will consider taking a pledge to join us on this yearlong journey. The goals can be whatever you decide. We hope to help you find ways to take charge of your time and to explore connecting with yourself, with your creativity and with your family and community. We’ll provide ways to connect with books through silent reading clubs, book discussions and author visits. We’ll have live animals, programs about local ways to connect with nature and gardening and the arts, concerts, crossword puzzles, a volunteer opportunity fair, and a wide array of health, wellness, mindfulness and craft programs.
We invite you to join us in pledging the following:
I will participate in MHL's yearlong Elect to Connect 2020 journey with the goal of living a fulfilling life.
