Spark Joy With the Life-Changing Magic of the Library

Marie Kondo’s bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up has graced library shelves since 2014, but her new Netflix show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo hit library Rokus in January. Using the KonMari Method, Marie Kondo helps individuals declutter their home on camera. Here’s how the library can help you tidy your own home and spark joy:

  1. Check out The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up or binge watch Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on a library Roku. While you’re at it, take a look at our entire section dedicated to organizing the home.
  2. If you’re short on time borrow the fifteen-minute version of the book on hoopla (free to use with your library card) to read on your phone or tablet.
  3. The best way to begin tidying a home is to discard unnecessary items and only retain items that spark joy. Lucky for you the library contains an endless supply of the newest books, music, and movies, allowing you to act like a hoarder without the nasty consequences. 
  4. Tidying helps people realize what their passions and desires are: it reveals what a person needs and wants. Once you figure out what matters, we have the online resources to help you learn more about what you love. Want to learn about photography, coding, or crafting? We’ve got an online class for that with Creativebug, Lynda.com, Gale Courses, and more.
  5. Digitize before you dispose. Before you send your vinyl collection, home videos, and mix tapes to the dumpster visit the library to digitize your records, VHS tapes, and cassettes. Vinyl and cassette conversion kits are available for checkout and VHS digitization may be performed inside the Creative Studio.
