Everyone has a role to play in increasing healthy living, including libraries! Let’s Move in Libraries is an international initiative to get people of all ages and abilities on the path to health. With their impressive reach and great potential for impact, public libraries can and do support healthy communities through StoryWalks®, seed collections, Yoga classes, gardens, cooking classes, and much, much more. Through Let’s Move in Libraries, public libraries can come together with partners to answer the call to action.
The Let’s Move in Libraries Project receives its inspiration from Former First Lady, Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, which from 2010 to 2017 focused on increasing healthy living among Americans through the promotion of Healthy Eating and Active Living, or HEAL.
