Becoming a Healthier You: Show Low Public Library

The proposed project aims to promote wellness in the Show Low, Arizona, area by providing resources for healthy cooking, exercise and hands-on classes, and by forming a “Healthy Living” club. The Show Low Public Library will make available for check-out a variety of kitchen equipment needed to encourage healthy cooking. Objectives include developing a Healthy Living Club for families and young children. This club will provide information on how to be more active, healthy recipes that are kid-friendly, and exercise opportunities. Staff will create a special Healthy Living Section in the Show Low Public Library that offers information resources, kitchen equipment, and other wellness supplies for check-out. The goal is to have a well-attended Healthy Living Club and for families to become a support system for each other. Outcomes will also focus on direct interaction with young families to evaluate changes in eating and exercise habits.
