Rossella Tesch, Director, Chadron Public Library (NE)
Yoga at the library started when several patrons discovered that I practice yoga. They asked the then library director if I could teach it and we inserted yoga in the summer adult reading program of that year. Later, the same group asked that we continued to do so. I have taught over 480 classes at the library so far and got over 2,500 patrons visits attending classes. Many of those that have attended classes have later on volunteer to help the library in other forms. Classes are totally free of charges and we provide bricks, mats and other equipment for patrons.
