Snowshoes in the Library? Check them out!

Windham County lending program helps make outdoor winter activity an easy choice

BRATTLEBORO – With the recent snow jump-starting March winter activities, Vermonters in Windham County have a new opportunity to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

Six libraries throughout Windham County have partnered with the Vermont Department of Health’s Brattleboro Office to promote physical activity by making snow shoes available for children and adults to borrow and enjoy. Town residents can stop in at their public library in Dover, Guilford, Jamaica, Townshend, Westminster West and Whitingham to check out the snowshoes. The program is funded by the Health Department to encourage community members to be active outside during the winter months.

“All you need is a library card and the desire to enjoy the snow,” said Prudence MacKinney, director of the Brattleboro Local Health Office. “The libraries have responded very positively to having this new equipment, and we have partnered with the Windham Regional Commission to create a map of places to snowshoe in each town,” MacKinney said. “This just makes it so easy to get out in the fresh air and have fun.”

Regular physical activity is a key factor in reducing chronic disease. “There are three behaviors – lack of physical activity, poor diet, and tobacco use – that lead to four chronic diseases that are the cause of more than 50 percent of all deaths in Vermont each year,” explained MacKinney. “Through our 3-4-50 initiative, we are working with community businesses and organizations to reduce the factors that lead to chronic diseases and bend the curve toward better health. Physical activity is so important, we want to make it easier for people to get outside and play.”
