THE MT. CARROLL LIBRARY WALKERS!!

Do you have spring fever and are itching to get out of the house once the weather turns warm? Walking is a great form of exercise and walking with friends makes the time go so much faster.

Don’t feel that you have to be an “expert walker” to join this group. You can walk at your own pace and go as far as you like. Eventually, our goal is to walk in the 5k at Mayfest on Saturday May 23, 2015 (optional).
Starting on April 18, we will meet in front of the library every Saturday morning at 8 a.m.

Let spring put a spring in your step and step out with the Library Walkers! It’s free, healthy, fun, and easy!
