Intervals will focus on the entire body and will feature core work, cardio and strength for the upper and lower body, a total package!

After the workout we will have a fitness inspired game for the kids and a nice stretch to follow for all! Bring with you a yoga mat or towel (for the ground) and a single weighted object (dumbbell, kettle bell, or even a water bottle) for each person.

Ongoing Programs

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Plant the Seed. Grow a Reader!

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program is a national initiative to support you and your baby, toddler, or preschooler in building reading skills one book at a time.

The Linwood Community Library encourages families to enjoy books together while having fun and nurturing a love of reading.

How to Participate:

  • Register at the library or sign up online.

  • Once your child is signed up, Ms. Stefanie will provide you with a welcome letter and full program details.

  • You'll pick up the first reading log at the library to get going. After reading 1,000 books with your child and completing the program, we'll celebrate!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who can participate in this program? Any child from birth until he/she enters Kindergarten.

  • I have more than one child I am reading to. Can I count the same title for each child? Yes. Each book you read counts for each child who hears the story.

  • Are there rules about the books we can read? No! Any book counts. Children sometimes love to hear the same book over and over, so each reading counts. Books heard at storytime, at daycare, or at the doctor's office all count!
