Joplin Public Library: A New Year, A New You, A New Hobby

Hobbies can be a great way to unwind, foster creativity, and make new friends. They offer an opportunity to pursue passions and set goals unrelated to our professional lives. As children, our free time was consumed with hobbies such as arts and crafts, playing sports, and games. While juggling the demands of adult life, we often push aside leisure activities due to time constraints and financial considerations.  However, studies have demonstrated that engaging in a hobby can contribute to long-term physical and mental well-being.

Joplin Public Library is a great resource to help you discover a new hobby or get back into a past favorite. It can be tempting to splurge on expensive supplies after seeing a fun project online (hello, Pinterest!). However, there is a risk that the hobby may not be ideal for you, and you end up collecting expensive gear you never use.
