The Herr Memorial Library is hosting a Kick Start Your Heart Event on Saturday, August 2nd from 10:00 am-12:00 pm for children of all ages and their caregivers.

This event is an extension of the libraries summer reading theme “Fizz, Boom, Read..Spark A Reaction” where we will incorporate the science of the body into the program by focusing on the heart, as well as, informing and encouraging children about ways to be physically active and healthy.

The event includes two different styles of workouts (approximately 15-20 minutes in length) for children demonstrated by two different exercise facilities in the area. The first is a boot camp style workout presented by Nisan Trotter the Co-founder and Head Instructor of TrotFitness of Lewisburg. The second workout is by Vicki Pachucki, who is the kids Zumba Instructor for Extreme Fitness of Mifflinburg.

Certified EMT’s and EMR’s are on hand to document vital signs such as pulse and heart rate before and after workouts so children and their caregivers can see what changes occur in the body when it is being worked and active and at rest.

Healthy snacks and drinks are provided, as well as, healthy recipes and nutritional information provided by Weis Markets. Children can also participate in a craft and other healthy activities. The American Red Cross will also have information on CPR & First Aid Certification Programs and other classes they offer to the community.

To register your child for this free event, please call Herr Memorial Library at 570-966-0831, or stop by the circulation desk during regular working hours.
