It’s official: Spring is here! As I peer into its etymology, I see the English word "spring" comes from the Old English "springan," which means “to leap, burst forth, fly up.” I have indeed been seeing New Yorkers bursting forth from their abodes in short sleeves and sandals, ready to enjoy the (even) warmer weather. Maybe the leaping and flying up will come later.
Three of NYPL’s branches will be hosting 50+ Fitness Fairs to share spaces and ways for New Yorkers to not only leap, but walk, hike, canoe, swim, lift weights, kayak, exercise, and enjoy nature right here in the Big Apple. St. Agnes Library will kick off the fun on Wednesday, April 11, followed by Mosholu Library in the Bronx on Saturday, April 14, and 96th Street Library on Saturday, April 28.
What’s happening at the fairs? A lot of organizations will be coming with — or sending — information, including maps and schedules of upcoming activities.
