This Is a Reading Area in a Library

So you can exercise your body and your mind at the same time! Falls Church High School in Falls Church, Virginia has these stationary bicycles in its library.

With a grant from Action for Healthy Kids, librarians Laura Potocki and Carrie Kausch set up an area in the library focused on health and fitness. Students can grab a book and read while burning calories. Those who participate in the Read & Ride program log their miles and their page counts in friendly competition.

Potocki and Kausch hope to next year acquire yoga ball chairs for some of their computer stations.
