Sonoma County: Health Literacy

From The Bohemian

” Want to kick off the new year on a healthy note, but don’t know where to start? Check out your local library.The Sonoma County Library is currently hosting an ongoing series, “Healthy Living at Your Library,” at all 12 locations through May. Aimed at educating people on healthful eating and cooking as well as physical fitness, the free classes range from cardio-focused kickboxing workouts to meditation and yoga to cooking demonstrations.Headed by library division manager Jaime Anderson, the series is part of the library’s plan to create a much broader program that touches on more aspects of life. “Most people think of libraries as places to read books, and we have a literacy program where we teach people to read,” Anderson says. “But this idea of a comprehensive services program goes beyond that.”The healthy living series was designed around the 2016 Sonoma County Community Health Needs Assessment, which found that healthful eating and physical fitness are top priorities for county residents.”
