EXERCISE AT THE LIBRARY

GALAX CARROLL REGIONAL LIBRARY, GALAX, VIRGINIA, U.S.A.

Since 2016, the Galax Virginia public library has offered at least one free exercise class a week. As of March, 2018, up to three exercise classes a week are available, including E-Z Exercise Mondays, Revv it Up Tuesdays, and Cardio Thursdays. The library also offers occasional classes in Yoga and Qigong. Every class is an hour and is held in the library’s meeting room. Participants sign liability waivers and exercise at their own pace using workout videos in the library’s collection. A staff member is present as a participant too.

Pam Russell, staff member said “Let’s Move in Libraries understands how libraries REALLY work and the trials and tribulations of starting and maintaining new programs. Thanks for giving us ideas about how other libraries manage the challenges we have experienced. That is valuable feedback that.”
