Walking Program

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.

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 are creating a local walking map with assistance from City of Florence, and we will hold a free community walk for all ages on Sunday, April 28, 2024, 1-3 PM at Miller Park.

The walking map will be available here soon for download, as well as printed copies at the library and local businesses.
