The theme this summer revolves around sports and a healthy lifestyle. Because of that we reached out to several local health studios to see if they might offer some exercise classes for kids. Getting local businesses in the library is a win win for everyone. The business gets free advertising and often times they were offer programming that is much more affordable because of it.
We were lucky enough to find a local mom who is a yoga instructor. She came in and led a yoga class for kids. It was such a cute class. The kids had fun, learned some new stretches and got to relax. A few of the parents were trying it out along with them! It was a great morning of family fun.
Later this summer we are having a gymnastics instructor come in for the kids and a crossfit instructor is coming in for the teens.
Reach out to the business in your community! It’s a great way to bring in new programming to the library and it is very cost effective.
