Win a Fitbit at the North Conway Library
Would you like to track your activities and your sleep? Or would you like to give a fitness/sleep tracker away as a gift to a friend or family member?
This summer, the North Conway Public Library is raffling off a Fitbit Alta fitness tracker! Raffle tickets are $3 each or four for $10 or ten tickets for $20. The drawing will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2016.
The Fitbit is one of the most popular fitness trackers ever and the brand new Fitbit Alta combines stylishness with functionality on its slender OLED display.
The Alta is a fashionable wristband that tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes, hourly activity & stationary time. It helps you stay active throughout the day by giving you friendly reminders to move.
You can instantly see the time and all your data & stats, plus smartphone notifications on the slim OLED display. It will push important call, text, and calendar notifications from your phone directly to your Fitbit.
Track your way to a better night’s sleep: The Alta automatically tracks how long and how well you sleep, so you can see your sleep trends and get on a better routine.
Its value is $130, but you can win it with a $3 raffle chance at the North Conway Library! All proceeds of the raffle will go directly to the Library to purchase new books and DVDs.
The library believes in the old adage “Healthy mind in a healthy body” and wants to enrich your life with its library offerings but also add value to your life by pursuing an active lifestyle. Hence the raffle of a fitness/ sleep tracker!
For more information about the raffle, please call the Library at (603) 356-2961 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Better yet, stop by the library on Main Street in North Conway Village to purchase your winning ticket!

A Fun Fundraiser for the North Conway Library

Join the North Conway Public Library on Oct. 1 for a day of mountain biking in the White Mountains at “Bike for Books: Mountain Bike Adventure Rides!”
Bike for Books offers biking enthusiasts of all levels and abilities a great opportunity to explore the varied trails and terrain along well-marked routes in North Conway.
This year, Bike for Books will focus on Whitaker Woods for easy rides and on North Conway's Eastside for intermediate and expert rides. Several brand new route options will be marked for all levels of riders, from novice to expert and some kid-friendly family loops, too. You can ride for an hour or two or do an epic ride with all the technically challenging hero options which takes about 4 to 6 hours.
Have fun learning new trails at your own pace- on your own or with a group of your friends.
After the ride, join other riders for the included pizza lunch, hot soup, fresh coffee, and delicious desserts.
Bike for Books is a fundraiser for the North Conway Library and fundraising by participants is encouraged with prizes for top fundraisers.
Highlights of the event:
- Self-guided rides on marked trails
- Different route options for all ages & abilities:
- 2 easy loops in Whitaker Woods (for kids & families & novice riders)

- Snack stop with food & drink

- Optional fundraising with prizes for top fundraisers instead of registration fee
Registration: 8-11 a.m.
Costs: Adults $25, couples $45, families $55, kids 16 +under $15. Or raise pledges instead!
Along with the great riding, the Mount Washington Valley offers many other activities for the whole family: great hiking in the White Mountains, canoeing and kayaking in the Saco River, shopping in the tax-free outlet stores, and much more. The blue ribbon fair in Fryeburg, Maine (10 miles away) will start the next day.
You can come and bike for an hour or all day; easy or difficult routes- it’s all your choice!
Riders should be on mountain bikes with knobby tires and children should have some off-road cycling experience. Joe Jones, the bike shop next to the Library, offers mountain bike rentals for the event for $10 (as supplies last).
Instead of paying a registration fee, you can also raise money for the North Conway Library. Top fundraisers will get prizes. Download a pledge form. Collect cash, checks, or let friends donate online.
Check-in & registration on the day of the event will be held at the Whitaker Woods Homesite in North Conway (off Route 16, across from White Mountain Oil) from 8 to 11 a.m.
