Lori NW.jpg

Do you know Nordic Pole Walking is:


  • Ideal for weight control as it can burn up to 40% more calories than regular walking
  • Time-saver for the time-strapped person: 30 minutes of Nordic walking benefits = 50 minutes walking without poles
  • Strengthens core muscles - toning abs, glutes and back muscles


Join us for an educational and hands-on demo and presentation to discover what Nordic pole walking is all about and why it is quickly catching on in America! Learn how easy it is to do and how it will benefit your health, weight, and well-being.

Presenter: Lori Clinch Adams is a trained Nordic Walking Coach since 2005. She has taught Nordic pole walking in Canada and the U.S. to hundreds of individuals. To learn more about Lori and Nordic pole walking go to www.polewalkingpolkco.weebly.com

There will be a drawing for a Hands-Free Walkin' Waist Pack and coupons for saving on lessons and pole combos. Don't miss this fun event...a great way to start a healthy New Year!

Meet Kid Author- Chelsea

Southwest Library is featuring several of the children who attended the Be an Author! program in October presented by author Maria Cox. The children or kid authors (in the same vein as Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer by John Grisham!) spent the afternoon learning a fun approach for how to write a story using descriptive sentences and to draw illustrations with different levels of detail to represent their story.

This week's featured kid author is Chelsea. She tells a tale of models, fashion, and mystery in her story, The Mystery Fashion Show. Chelsea's descriptions and illustration make you feel you are sitting right there at the fashion runway!
