Author / Librarian / Yogi

Jenn Carson is a professional yoga teacher and the director of the L.P. Fisher Public Library in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada.

She is the creator of the website and has been delivering movement-based programs in schools, libraries, and museums for a decade.

She also blogs about her physical literacy adventures at the ALA’s Programming Librarian website:

Get Your Community Moving

Physical Literacy Programs for All Ages

Jenn's new book on physical literacy is now available from ALA Editions.

By helping patrons view the library in a new way, movement-based programs bring new people into libraries, help promote community health, and stimulate literacy for children and adults alike.

This book is essential reading for any programming librarian, administrator, or community coordinator looking to boost circulation stats, program numbers, literacy rates, and foster joy and wellness in their community.
