Farmer City Library Secures Fit Bit Grant

The Farmer City Library is calling on women in the Farmer City area to participate in a six-week Fitbit activity thanks to a grant from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.


Farmer City Library Director Amy Johnson told Regional Radio News Tuesday morning on the WHOW Morning Show the Fitbit grant will allow 20 women in the Farmer City area to receive a Fitbit as a part of this grant and then take part in a six-week program surrounding monitoring health through the Fitbit.



The program gets underway next Monday and women in Farmer City can register now. According to Johnson, the first session introduces participants on how to use the Fitbit, sync it with your phone and then how to track your information.



The goal is to give women in Farmer City an incentive to stay active. Johnson explains throughout the six weeks, they get together at the Library to discuss how they are doing and she hopes it becomes a good networking opportunity and support network.
