As we enter into a new year, we often think about our New Year’s resolutions/goals for the upcoming months/year. Is your goal this year to explore a new hobby, further improve your skills in a subject area or to complete a fitness challenge (e.g., run a 5K or a 10K run)? If so, please check out how our library resources can support you in meeting your goals:
1) Explore a New Hobby

Universal Class offers over 500 online courses to choose from and by completing the requirements, you can even earn yourself a certificate! All you need is to login with your Markham Public Library card and create a new account on their website to enroll in the courses.
2) Improve Your Skills in a Subject Area
