Let’s get this new year started right!

That’s the message behind Selbyville Public Library’s upcoming health fair, Just for the Health of It! Scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, the event will run like an open house or trade fair. The public can come and go, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Booths will include cancer screening information; physical therapy, with hand massage therapy; a local dance and yoga studio; the Chamber of Commerce, with local health information; Beebe Healthcare screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol and more.

“And they tell you the results right here,” said Laura Armes, the library’s adult-services coordinator. “I’m really hoping its going to be interactive, a very busy afternoon.”

Guests can leave with a grab-bag of information and gifts, and they’re eligible to win prizes that include books on health and diet.

“The idea came to kick off 2017 and be healthy — get your screenings done, eat healthy, get exercise. That’s kind of the message. We need to get healthy. Let’s start off 2017 right,” Armes said. “I think it’s a good idea after holidays. We all indulge.”

Selbyville Public Library is located at 11 Main Street, at McCabe Street. For details, visit www.selbyvillelibrary.org or call (302) 436-8195.
