Let's Book! with the Ligonier Valley Library

"An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." Henry David Thoreau, Walking

When summer ends many people tend to use their reading glasses more than their walking shoes. This fall, we challenge you to change that by joining our 10-week walking and reading program, Let's Book! Join as an individual or take the team challenge.

Let's Book - Exercise for the Brain and the Body

"Let's Book" is about encouraging participants to read and to walk every day for optimal health of the mind and the body! Participants can set their own goals and walk at their own pace... and on their own terms!

Walk on your own when it suits your busy schedule or join us for one (or all) of our Thursday morning Group Walks.

This program is free and open to anyone who enjoys walking and who enjoys reading! (Although we caution walking and reading at the same time, unless listening to an audiobook.)

More information on the program, as well as membership forms and logs, can be found on the library’s website at or by stopping in the library!

An orientation meeting will be held on Thursday, September 4, from 9:30 – 10:30 am!

Program sponsors are the Ligonier Valley Library, Graceful Aging Wellness Center and the Ligonier Valley YMCA.
