The habits we have, whether good ones or bad ones, are the key determiners of the quality of our lives. If you are not in charge of your habits, you are not in charge of your life.
This presentation will provide you with the means to both identify your most troubling habits and then change them to better support your dreams, goals, and expectations. You won't leave the presentation a changed person, but you'll come to the follow-up as THE NEW, IMPROVED YOU 2

The next Friends of the Library meeting for South Shuswap and Salmon Arm is Monday, April 30th in the boardroom of the Piccadilly Mall in Salmon Arm..
Th annual Friends Book Sale will be held June 22 & 23 in the Piccadilly Mall in front of the Salmon Arm branch.
South Shuswap Friends of the Library group was formed in 2002 under the umbrella of the Salmon Arm Friends of the Library group. There are 12 volunteers that help out with the book sales in Salmon Arm. The South Shuswap Friends of the Library was originally called the Sorrento Friends of the Library.
The book sales are fundraisers for future purchases that help with extra items within the branch. We have purchased two lounge chairs from the "Friends of the Library" fund which are situated in the magazine area. In our children's area, the Friends have purchased some very unique items such as toadstools to sit on, and a pretend firepit. The group also provides funds for special library programs and is instrumental in funding the "Summer Reading Program" that is held July and August for children. This Canada wide program encourages reading and literacy throughout the summer break! The amount of funds for South Shuswap Library, gained from a book sale is calculated by the number of hours South Shuswap volunteers work during that time.
Meetings are held 4 times a year on the third Monday of February, April, June, September and November.
The Friends group is actively seeking new members....please contact Sherry at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 250-804-0936 for more information.
