    While we may know well what personal fitness means, the concept
    of a fit library is ambiguous. Is it simply a matter of paying attention
    to the numbers, not unlike observing metrics such as the Body Mass
    Index? Does an increase in circulation or the delivery of more
    instruction sessions point to a fit library? Achieving library fitness is
    a combination of strategies that, like personal fitness, involve
    consistent behaviors, discipline, commitment to change, and having
    fun while shaping up. What follows are a dozen actions librarians
    can take that can lead to fitter, future-proofed libraries.
