It was so great to see everyone come out to register for the Walk the Wall Challenge!
We have 25 people currently registered, with pedometers available for five more patrons.
You can also complete this challenge using your own tracking device (Fitbit, Apple Watch, etc.). All you have to do is track your steps, report to the library your weekly step total (online, by phone, or in person) to help us walk the distance of the Great Wall of China as a group!
The more participants, the better!
The first check-in date is Saturday, January 14, so call, come in, email, or message our Facebook page to let us know your first week's step count!

I am just finishing Joseph Boyden's new book, Wenjack, a small book in size but powerful in its content… the story of a boy fleeing a residential school in Northern Ontario. The language is lyrical and poignant. Boyden demonstrates his great skill as a writer in a story that is deeply moving and captures the depth of emotion with regard to this sad chapter of our history.
