Want to get organized, healthier, or become more creative in 2018? Newport News Public Libraries are offering programs all throughout January to help everyone get started with their New Year’s resolutions.

On January 3, visit Pearl Bailey Library at 7 p.m. for a free bullet journaling workshop to help get organized. Bullet journaling is a method of journaling and note-taking that uses bullet points as the core structure.  With bullet journaling, you take quick notes on any number of things, and then mark those notes with  symbols to categorize and track them. Online registration is required to attend the Bullet Journaling 101 workshop.
