What is physical literacy? Why is it a cornerstone to whole-person literacy? Whyshould libraries offer movement-based programs? Where do we start?

This multimodal production will include a PowerPoint presentation, videos,handouts and some (optional) yoga stretches to get the audience into a bodypositivestate of mind. It will explore the neuroscience behind physical literacy,share case studies of what other libraries are doing (both academic and public),offer links to program models, and discuss some of the ways we can make physicalliteracy programs inclusive to all ages and levels of mobility. The presentation willbuild on the foundation of last year’s popular APLA talk Yoga in the Library:Outreach & Inreach and expand into exciting ideas like bike expos, running clubs,mini-golf, hula hooping, ballroom dancing, and much more!
