The Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library recently launched a “Get Fit While You Sit” video series of seated and low impact exercises to increase flexibility, improve posture, and exercise the brain. These workouts are great for senior citizens or anyone who would benefit from gentle, seated exercise and stretching. Workouts will be led in English and Mandarin. To view the “Get Fit While You Sit” videos, please go to http://www.montereypark.ca.gov/1326/Get-Fit-While-You-Sit.
Residents can also celebrate Healthy Aging Month by checking out our brand new health and wellness books through Contactless Checkout or Library Home Delivery. To search for and request materials for Contactless Checkout please visit the library’s website at www.montereypark.ca.gov/library or contact the Reference Desk at 626-307-1368.
