Many people take time at the beginning of the year to reflect upon what they may have accomplished in the previous one. Whatever the conclusion, most agree that there is always room for improvement. In keeping with the theme of self-improvement and discovery, Omaha Public Library staff recommends books to help guide you on your journey to becoming a better you. Find these books and more at omahalibrary.org or your local branch.
