Spring into Your Favorite Hobbies!

by Noelle Williams, Reference Coordinator

Spring is the perfect time to renew your passion for your favorite hobbies. Whether you enjoy the outdoors, baking, stamp collecting, crafting or restoring old vehicles, the library has something for everyone!

Our Hobbies and Crafts Reference Center contains articles covering over 140 topics as well as many other periodicals, books, and videos that focus on a variety of hobbies and crafts. Lifelong learners can check out our list of recommended resources for free online classes for everything from learning how to code to learning another language.

Restoring a car? Then visit the library’s Automate database. This online resource contains information about service and repair procedures, wiring diagrams, diagnostic trouble codes and diagrams for parts and components. And don’t forget to take a look at our Home Improvement Reference Center if you’re planning a home renovation project! You can find articles on decorating, gardening, remodeling, and woodworking.

The library also has RBDigital Magazines, an online magazine service that gives you 24/7 access to your favorite hobby and craft magazine titles. RBDigital contains a variety of titles for hobbyists, such as Beadwork, Artists Magazine, Field & Stream and Do It Yourself. You can even download the RBDigital app to get your favorite titles on your phone.

No matter what you love to do, the library has something for you! To learn more about the library’s free online resources, visit our Online Library or contact the reference librarian at your favorite branch.
