Portable program ideas, ideas for reaching underserved populations are needed as are crossword puzzles, quizzes or other reproducibles.

Exercise Your Mind:
Books That Move You
Walk, Run, Read
Eat, Move, Read
Eat Well, Be Well, Read Well
Read for Your Life
Reading – a Healthy Habit
Move It, Read It, Love It
Healthy Minds Read
Get Up and Read
A Book a Day

Programming ideas:
Moving body helps brain health
Passive programs are the easiest way to get started
Partner with academic libraries for a One Book/One Read
Adult programmers can speak at town meetings
Partner with the Library for the Blind
Outreach in Prisons
Partner with the Cooperative Extension Service
Read down fines
Partner with homeless shelters
Include family activities
Walk and Talk
Fun Run or Fun Walk
Pair teens with adults (especially older adults) to teach how to use cell phones
Read Aloud Book Club at assisted living facilities

Manual suggestions:
Have a reading record that says reading aloud to child “counts”
Crossword puzzles, mind games (make Alzheimer’s connection)
Provide book mark with rating system (stars, numbers) for books, movies.  Easier than getting people to write reviews.
More reproducible for adults
