50+ Fitness Fairs: Free and Low-cost Activities to Get (or Keep!) You Fit


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.

Yoga program

I want to express my extreme disappointment with the suspension of your Yoga program in all Manhattan branches except Morningside. We welcomed the program so we could stay healthy day to day. The program was suspended suddenly a few weeks ago without a word of explanation to patrons nor any advisement as to when the program may start again. I think I express the feelings of many patrons who attend.
