America is aging. Is your library ready to support the physical activity needs of older adults? In this webinar: Crystal D. Holland, the Branch Manager of the Rural Hall Library in Forsyth County North Carolina and Jane Schweinsburg, Assistant Director of the Coventry Public Library in Rhode Island share their experiences of offering physical activity programs for older adults at their libraries, and Stephanie Dailey, the director of the National Institute on Aging’s Go4Life campaign, provides an overview of free evidence-based tools you can use for physical activity programs, including a new Go4Life Speaker’s Toolkit. A major component of the webinar focuses on partnerships. Holland’s library has worked with the local health department since 2006 to offer weekly sittercise classes at the library. Schweinsburg works with volunteers and with the local housing authority. Dailey discusses how to partner with Go4Life. This webinar provides you with the information and inspiration you need to get started with physical activity programs for older adults at your libraries.
