Moore Public Library

The Moore Public Library is taking steps in being a community leader in wellness and health, and now it’s asking for residents of the community to take their own steps to do so as well.
The library is hosting its Rock Mount Moore Step Challenge this summer, with a community goal for Moore residents to walk, run or dance 15 million steps during June and July.
Signups will begin during the library’s Summer Reading Kickoff and Parade on Thursday, May 31, and participants may sign up at the library through July 31.
Upon registration, participants will receive a tracking log and pedometer, or they can sign up to use their own personal fitness tracker that they may already own.
The library recently was honored by the Institute for Healthcare Advancement for its efforts to promote health literacy in the Moore community. The library received the Health Literacy Innovation Award for its ongoing health and fitness programming for adults and children. These include regular Monday evening Yoga classes, Thursday evening Zumba classes, plus special summer offerings like Harry Potter-inspired Quidditch events, an intergenerational pie making program and a hula hooping activity.
And now the Mount Moore Step Challenge is taking things even further, literally.
Financial assistance for this special project is made possible with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. The project also is sponsored by Orr Family Farm, The Station (City of Moore) and JumpZone!
