Mind, Body, & Sole: A Universe of Stories!

MindBodySoleLogoMark BlueLineJune 3 – July 27, 2019

Make reading and exercise a part of your day—every day. Both have the power to brighten your spirit, stimulate your imagination and improve your health.

Mind, Body & Sole: A Universe of Stories! is a reading/wellness experience for the whole family to enjoy. You’re more likely to read and exercise if it’s convenient--Mind, Body & Sole is so easy, it practically runs itself.

Sign up now at your nearest Akron-Summit County Public Library, and receive your Mind, Body & Sole reading/exercise log and pedometer. Now you’re ready to get started! From June 3-July 27, check off each day you read on your reading log. As you reach reading milestones, you’ll be rewarded with fun incentives and be entered into drawings for great prizes.

Choose to Live Active Also!

On your exercise log, record each day you participate in a movement activity—running, walking, bicycling, yoga, gardening, outside play, physical therapy, and more. When you have reached 26 days of exercise AND 26 days of reading, you will receive a Mind, Body & Sole T-shirt and have the chance to be entered into our Grand Prize Drawing.

Take the first step to a happier, more productive life. Find out more about Mind, Body & Sole: A Universe of Stories! at akronlibrary.org or contact your local branch library.
