    We consider our participation in Healthy Central Florida, as part of Healthy Maitland, a vital part of the Library’s function.

    Walking Maitland: We have a regular morning walk every Thursday morning at 7:00. There are several measured trails to choose from, all originating from the Library. The walks are good for your physical health, but they are also good for your social life, as participants often adjourn to the Library for tea or coffee.

    In addition, the Library is actively organizing more measured walking trails in Maitland, with more than seven miles of available trails in the Maitland Center area.
