By Magi, Entiat Librarian

March 30 is National Take a Walk in the Park Day, and one of the best ways to enjoy a walk in the park is to go with friends. Several NCW Libraries patrons from Entiat have been doing just that every week with their Walk In The Park Book Club. 

People walkingEntiat Librarian Magi started the walking book club as a way to provide adults with a weekly outdoors program when Covid-19 prevented folks from gathering indoors. It works just like a regular book club; everyone reads the same book and then gets together to discuss it, except instead of meeting at an indoor location, members meet at the park and walk while discussing the book.

With weather getting more consistently pleasant, and no shortage of beautiful places to walk in North Central Washington, now is a great time to start a walking book club of your own. It’s easy! Just grab a few friends, check out one of NCW Libraries’ book club kits, and decide where and when you’ll walk.

Walk in the Park Day is celebrated annually on March 30 to encourage people to invest in their health without spending a lot of money. Taking a leisurely stroll in the park is a great way to clear your mind of everyday worries and stresses and appreciate the natural beauty around you while you get your body moving.

While a holiday or club is a great reason to get started walking, there’s no reason you can’t make every day Walk in The Park Day!
