Looking for Snowshoes? Head to the Library!

Looking for Snowshoes? Head to the Library.

There’s something new you can now check out your local library.

Through funding from the Vermont Department of Health’s 3-4-50 initiative and RiseVT, 47 public libraries across the state are now letting community members check out free snowshoes, with sizes available for adults and children. RiseVT is a publicly funded community initiative to help more Vermonters get the resources they need to live a healthy lifestyle. They provide classes, organize community exercise and sports events and have compiled a comprehensive list of libraries that offer free snowshoes. Expect to see them organizing events in each of Vermont’s 14 counties by the end of 2019.

Check out RiseVT.org for a comprehensive list of libraries that offer snowshoes across the state, an events calendar and recommendations for local trail systems where you can snowshoe. —A.G.
