The library has also livestreamed a holiday season decompression yoga series for adults who were unable to attend or that might not be comfortable attending in person. The library also periodically hosts and livestreams a Yoga for Kids series. Each January, the library offers a Get Fit series of programs with varied exercise classes. The idea is to allow people to try a variety of classes with no financial investment and hopefully find one that they wish to pursue independently. Some classes have included Crossfit, dancing, and Barre. The library also occasionally features dancing as part of its monthly TRY FPL series focusing on hands-on, active participation programming. Through circulation, the library also checks out fishing poles and tools of all sorts, which include a large selection of gardening tools. The library is also exploring ways to circulate kayaks and other outdoor activity equipment.
