Winter blues have you down? The York County Library hopes to lift your spirits and better your body with a new series of events beginning Tuesday.

The Live Well @ Your Library series offers to “help residents of York County and our neighbors live the best lives possible,” according to a press release from the YCL. The series aims to help attendees improve their quality of life with presentations that focus on the body, mind and soul.

There will be one session at both the Yorktown and Tabb Libraries for each event.

The first event, titled “Organize Your Head and Home,” will be hosted by professional organizer Mary Francis Ballard. Ballard will offer advice on moving past the disarray of the holiday season by clearing mental and physical clutter, and will sell copies of her book after her presentation.

The first session will take place at the Yorktown Library Tuesday, Jan. 17 between 2 and 3 p.m. in the Yorktown Meeting Room. The second session will be held in the Tabb Library Saturday, Jan. 21, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Tabb Meeting Room.

A dietitian from Mary Immaculate Hospital will host the second event in the Live Well @ Your Library series. Attendees will learn how to improve the health of their hearts through the food they eat.

“Heart Healthy Nutrition” will first visit the Tabb Library Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 3-4 p.m. in the Tabb Meeting Room. The series will move back to the Yorktown Library Thursday, Feb. 23 between 3 and 4 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to register at the library’s online event calendar or by calling (757) 890-5207 for Yorktown sessions or (757) 890-5120 for Tabb sessions.

The Live Well @ Your Library series will continue through 2017. Residents should periodically refer to the library’s website for updates.
