Northgate Mall in Durham and Durham County Library will host a couple of free events this month aimed at getting kids and teens in shape.
On Aug. 6 and Aug. 20, Mindful Bodies will offer active fitness classes set to high energy music. Sessions are scheduled 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for kids and 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. for teens. You can find the programs at Northgate's Discovery Nook, suite 118, in Northgate's Children's Alleyway.
The Discovery Nook offers kid-friendly, educational programs on two Saturdays each month. As part of the events, the Durham County Library Bookmobile is located outside on the plaza so participants can get a library card and check out books, books on CD and videos.
