SMYRNA STRONG

SMYRNA PUBLIC LIBRARY, GEORGIA, U.S.A.

Smyrna Public Library launched its “Smyrna Strong” collection in January 2018, timing the launch to coincide with New Year’s resolutions. Residents of Smyrna, Georgia, could check-out fitness equipment, games involving physical activity, sports equipment, and backpacks for hiking at no cost. Smyrna Strong supports residents’ resolutions to live healthier lives. All items in the collection can be checked out for one week at a time and can be renewed. Mary Wallace Moore, Library Director said, “We got all our ideas from the Let’s Move in Libraries webinars and articles. My City Administrators love, love, love this.”
