Something for Everyone at the Winters Community Library

There are a number of special programs being offered at the Winters Community Library, a joint-use library partnership between the Yolo County Library and Winters High School.

The Tales 4 Tails program occurs every Tuesday, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., through the end of June.  The program allows young readers to meet with a gentle service dog for 15 minutes and practice reading skills with that special listener.  Space is limited, so contact the library [(530) 795-4955] soon to reserve time with a big, lovable pooch. 

An English Conversation Group will be starting on May 8.  It will be held weekly on Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  It is geared toward adults, but open to all who wish to improve their conversational English skills.  Come practice your language skills in a friendly, communal atmosphere.  No registration necessary.

2014 Weekly Challenge #13: Appreciate your Body (Positive Self-Talk)!

In earlier challenges, we focused on being grateful and positive instead of negative and complaining. The whole purpose of those challenges was to realize that what you say and think makes a difference in how you act and feel. Whatever you focus on is what you feed, and what you feed grows. If all you think about is what you don't have, your dissatisfaction grows; if most of what you say comes out as a complaint, you forget to see the positive.

This week's challenge builds on that idea.
