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.
