Because they believe books should be available to everyone, Ready, Set, Read! hosts parent education programs and classroom lending libraries to get children reading at home. During bilingual workshops, parents can learn techniques such as the dialogic method, which uses open-ended questions and discussions to engage children in content, making reading aloud fun for young children at home. The program focuses on demonstrating how influential the parents’ role is in developing literacy skills and self-confidence. Since 2000, volunteers and educators with Ready, Set, Read! have built more than 160 classroom lending libraries, taught more than 27,000 local parents to read with their children on a regular basis, and distributed as many books to those families.

The exercise enthusiasts at Women’s World Fitness Center chase guests toward fitness goals with a posse of group workouts designed especially for women. With the help of an attentive teacher, Group Power students add muscle tone, subtract calories, and find the square root of pi through a series of squats and presses. Zumba and Cardio Salsa pair easy-to-follow moves with Latin rhythms to dance away stress. Up to 15 pedalers bolster their cardio health in music-fueled spinning sessions, and exercisers of all levels learn jabs, hooks, and empowering self-defense maneuvers in kickboxing classes. The gym also promotes sound minds to fill healthy bodies by offering Pilates, two types of yoga, and an atmosphere that fosters collaboration and encouragement rather than full-contact jumping-jack duels. Consult the schedule for class dates and times.
