Have you ever heard of Hygge? I must admit I'd never even heard the word. But now I know, and so can you. Hygge is a Danish word used to acknowledge a special feeling or moment. It usually centers on the art of coziness. It's pronounced hue-gah. I think it's something we all enjoy, so why not embrace it?

There will be a Hygge Open House at the Boardman Road Branch Library at 141 Boardman Road in Poughkeepsie from 5 - 8 pm on Saturday, Feb. 2. It's a celebration all things comfy, be it hearty soups, relaxing crafts, or good conversation. Feel free to drop in and sample delicious foods, cozy up with a good book, or enjoy the company of friends. Registration is suggested but not required. Ages 18 and older, please.
