Mind, Body & Sole: Read At Your Own Pace

June 9 – August 30, 2014

Make reading and exercise a part of your day — every day.

Mind, Body & Sole is a reading/wellness experience for the whole family to enjoy. You’re more likely to read and exercise if it’s convenient–Mind, Body & Sole is so easy, it practically runs itself. Register now at your nearest Akron-Summit County Public Library location to receive a Mind, Body & Sole bag, pedometer, reading/exercise log, and more.

How the program works:

From June 9-August 30, check off each day you read for 30 minutes on your reading log. As you reach reading milestones, you’ll be rewarded with fun incentives or be entered into drawings for great prizes.

  1. Fill out a registration card at your library and receive your free goodie bag, including your reading and exercise logs.
  2. Read 30 minutes today. Check off the date on your reading log. You will win a prize, or be entered into a prize drawing, at each of these reading milestones: 10 days, 26 days, 40 days, 50 days, 60 days, 70 days, and 80+ days.
  3. Choose to be active also! Run/walk 26 miles (or 52,000 pedometer steps), record your accomplishment on your exercise log, AND read 26 days and you will receive a Mind, Body & Sole T-shirt. Fill out the entry form at the bottom of your exercise log to also be entered into our end-of-summer Grand Prize Drawing to be held at the Library’s 140th Anniversary Celebration on September 13. (If a pedometer cannot record your movement activity, log 1/2 hour activity as one mile.)
