New Year, New Beginnings: Start 2022 with a Bullet Journal!
What better time to set goals, get organized, and start fresh than the beginning of a new year! Let Dumas Library help with those goals. Beginning on January 3, the Dumas Library is offering a bullet journaling kit as our Teen/Adult Take & Make kits. What is a bullet or dot journal? It is a planner, list-keeper, diary, and so much more all rolled into 1 notebook. Instead of having sticky notes all over the office or the home, lists in several places, and a habit tracker lost in the depths of a bag, a bullet journal keeps everything in one place. The best part about these journals, they are customized to fit YOUR needs.
The Take & Make kits include the basics of starting a bullet journal: a composition notebook, colorful pen, and decorative/washi tape. The kit also includes tips and tricks on starting your journal, as well as resources that can be found at the library or online (see the two featured books below). The amount of kits is limited, so be sure and stop in at the Dumas Library to get one as early as possible.
Happy New Year!
Need to get organized? Blogging star Rebecca Spooner shows you how to create a great journal that will put your life in order.

This book is located at the Dumas Branch Library.
In The Bullet Journal Method, Ryder Carroll, the system's founder, provides an essential guide to avoiding all-too-common beginner mistakes and building a core discipline from which you can personalize your practice. You'll not only learn to organize your tasks, but to focus your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful to you by following three simple steps:
* Track the past. Create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.
* Order the present. Find daily calm and clarity by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.
* Design the future. Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change.
Whether you're a frustrated list maker, an overwhelmed multitasker, or a creative who needs some structure, The Bullet Journal Method will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.
