Every Step Counts in the "GPL in Motion" Healthy Walking Challenge

Start 2013 out on the right foot!  Join the Guelph Public Library’s “GPL in Motion! Healthy Walking Challenge.”  Thanks to the wonderful community support and donation from Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph (WDG) inMotion, the GPL now has 100 pedometers available for Guelph residents to borrow.  These simple step counting tools are available at every library location and can be checked out for four weeks at a time.
