The Let’s Move in Libraries project is focused on understanding how public libraries create opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to move and be active. This project is inspired by Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, which focused on increasing physical activity and healthy living among Americans. This project is administered by Noah Lenstra, Assistant Professor of Library and Information Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
