Eager to drop extra pounds packed on during the holiday season?

Nutritionist Heather Carey will offer tips at a Fairfield Public Library program Thursday evening, Jan. 16.

The free program is planned at 7 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the main branch, 1080 Old Post Road.

Carey has a master's degree in culinary nutrition, library officials said, and she helps people make meaningful changes in their diets that contribute to long-term health and fitness goals.

Space at the program is limited, and the library urged those interested to register in advance.

To register, visit www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org or call the library at 203-256-3160.
