SIDEWALK OBSTACLE COURSE

Brighton District Library, Michigan, USA

By Laurie Walters, Youth Services Librarian

How has this library supported healthy living?
Thanks to inspiration Let’s Move in Libraries, we created an obstacle course on the front sidewalk of our library.  We also have instituted “active passive programs” in our garden this summer like posting yoga poses, exercises, etc.

Here is our YouTube video introducing the obstacle course.

What impacts have you seen this work have?
Families are enjoying the chance to take part in in-person library activities again after a long lull from pandemic restrictions.
