Walking Program

About Us. Siuslaw Public Library is participating in a two-year study with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) to promote walking in the community. Twenty rural libraries from around Oregon were selected for the program, and each library recruited a group of community members to participate in the study. Each group walks weekly, and half the libraries (including ours) were chosen to do a "Change Club" curriculum and project in addition to the weekly walk.

Grant Project. Our group received a grant from OHSU to promote or improve walking in the community. Each library group gets to choose and implement their own project. We have created a local walking map with assistance from City of Florence, and we held a community walk in April. We are planning additional community walks later this year.

Walking Map. As part of the OHSU grant, we have developed a new local walking paths and trails map. Download the PDF here or look for copies around town!
