Did you set exercise goals for yourself but gym classes or memberships just aren’t feasible? Do you enjoy walking, but don’t enjoy the cold?
As part of our Sustained Success Series* of programs and educational classes in 2023, the Quincy Public Library is here to help you reach your goals and keep active!
We are featuring a brand-new adult activity: A story walk! New to the concept of an adult story walk? No problem! Here’s how it works: you come into the library, walk its perimeter, stop periodically where signs are posted and read a bit of a short story at each stop! By the time you are finished you will not only have read a wonderful new story, but will have added .23 miles of walking to help you reach your fitness and activity goals!
Stories will change every Monday, so you will have something new to read every week while you walk!
In addition to the benefits you receive from movement and reading, there is an additional bonus and inspiration to complete story walks: we have made this a reading challenge! By completing StoryWalks you will be automatically entered into a monthly drawing for a $20 gift card to a local business (businesses will vary)!
*This program is part of QPL's Sustained Success Series of programs and educational classes designed to help you reach your personal, financial, health, fun and fitness goals for 2023. For further educational programs in our Sustained Success Series, check out our calendar!
