Walking is always a good idea

I like walking. Walking if easy yet healthy. Walking can do more than just self-improvement; it can be a way to help others.

I was pretty surprised yet proud when I read that my former place of work, Library Services Centre, has an upcoming fundraiser, Walk for Young Readers (press release pdf) as announced on OLA Blog.

LSC’s three Children’s Book Specialists will clock their commuter kilometres on foot, setting off from LSC in Kitchener, Ontario and heading home towards London. Many other LSC employees and friends will walk every day during the week of September 22, collecting pledges from publishers, families and friends

They’ll be raising funds for the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation Public Library (which does not have a website AFAIK). You may be thinking “But they’re raising funds to spent at their own business!”, however, besides that LSC is a not-for-profit, they really do care about their libraries. I may have to email a couple of my former coworkers to see about donating. For more info email Darian Lajoie Paquette at dlajoie-paquette@lsc.on.ca.
