In an effort to raise awareness of the growing rate of childhood obesity in America, and to help curtail the problem, the Davenport Public Library has partnered with the American Heart Association for a series of “Go Healthy” workshops, teaching kids about living healthy. The Library will be offering health and fitness-related workshops every third Saturday of the month, now through April, at 2:00 pm, at the Fairmount Street Library. Each workshop will highlight a different activity, while featuring special guests from the community. Upcoming workshops include: ballet and jazzercise.
