Browsing the magazine shelves, I found a few healthy tips for the holiday season. Health has photos of 8 holiday treats under 80 calories; the naga truffles look yummy. “Mix & Match Workout” and “America’s Healthiest Mall Foods” are feature articles. Prevention‘s December issue promotes “Easy Party Pleasers!” and suggests 30-minute dinners at http://prevention.com/quickandeasy. January Runner’s features “New Year, New You” and an article about dressing appropriately for the cold.
There is comfortable seating near the magazine shelves. Enjoy!
Like to read? Want convenience? Digital books may be the answer. Although our library’s e-books require you to use a computer there are other alternatives. Some public libraries have e-book collections that can be downloaded to portable devices, such as a Nook™.
Check out these links to websites with reviews and comparisons of e-book readers and reading apps.
FYI: The Library subscribes to several health-related databases. Health Reference Center Academic and Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition are two of the ones listed on the Health and Medical Databases webpage. It is easy to connect to reliable, published sources of health information.
The American Diabetes Association posts a useful website at http://www.diabetes.org/
