Take A Hike in Your Library

Walking just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance, but getting your steps in during crazy Louisiana weather can be difficult. Come to the Pride-Chaneyville Branch any day in December (excluding holidays) and walk by yourself or with a small group of friends. We have measured three areas: the “inside loop” is 14 steps or 1/16 of a mile, “against the wall” is 280 steps or 1/8 mile, and the “serpentine” is 565 steps of 1/4 mile. There are also exercise stations scattered throughout the library.
