Montclair Public Library

Locals of all ages have been exercising their minds and bodies all summer long with Montclair Public Library (MPL) as part of its annual Summer Reading campaign. (I joined and have been reading a new book every week, plus exercising more).  On Saturday, August 20 beginning at 9 am, the community is invited to celebrate with a full day of events at Edgemont Park.

“The health and fitness themes of this year have been incredibly helpful in promoting active lifestyles and health literacy,” said Chelsea Dodd, Information Services Supervisor. “Of all of the summer reading initiatives in which I have participated, this one has been the most fun.”

“The Summer Reading Program has been a staple of Montclair Public Library for years,” said Anita Peterson, Foundation Manager. “The Partners for Health Foundation grant has expanded it to foster not only a love of reading but of healthy living as well.
