Welcome to Let’s Move In Libraries. This website contains resources and information for public librarians interested in starting and sustaining movement-based programming, which includes everything from bike rodeos to yoga classes to 5Ks to music and movement storytimes.
A quarterly series of webinars on starting, implementing and sustaining movement-based programs began August 16, 2017. Librarians Jenn Carson and Gwen GeigerWolfe shared best practices from the U.S. and Canada. The webinar was recorded, and is available at the webinar archive. The next webinar will be on the connections between “libraries of things” and physical activity, and will be held November 8, 2017 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. Click here to register.
