Let's get healthy, together! Learn how you can support healthy living among both library staff and library patrons through new programs, spaces, and collections developed through community partnerships.
In this one-hour webinar, Prof. Noah Lenstra will coves the basics of public health theory, and demonstrates how it can be used to build healthy living into your library. More and more libraries support healthy living through everything from free summer meals to cooking classes to library gardens to yoga classes and even by checking out non-traditional items like bicycles and hiking backpacks. These things emerge from library staff passionate about healthy living, whose health is supported by library administration, and who have the tools and time to build and sustain community partnerships. Get the information and inspiration you need to make healthy living happen at your library!
