Decatur Public Library has partnered with local fitness and nutrition experts to develop our Healthy Heroes Summer Program 2019. Healthy Heroes combines the power of summer reading with the value of a healthy lifestyle. Rather than focus solely on reading this summer, our Healthy Heroes program will incorporate a fitness challenge and a healthy food choices challenge as well as our typical reading challenge. Our partners, Fit-N-Wise, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, Star Council, and Wise Community Health Improvement Initiative, will join us to get the word out and support the 86 and 87 who may participate in the program. In addition, we will purchase a Healthy Living collection of books including nutrition, exercise, and making healthy choices for 86 and 87.
