Featured Maps! Winter Recreation

Theme for the week: Winter Recreation

December 11-15, 2017

Start this winter break with an open mind sprinkled with some fun! Don’t let the cold deter you from enjoying the wonders of the outdoors. Come on over to the Shields Library Map Collection room and check out the maps of Tahoe, Alpine County, and more to explore the activities available.

Imagine going sledding, snowboarding, or skiing down Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort, or participating in a snowmobile race in Reno. Lets not forget dog-sledding! Or, with a little patience, even ice fishing! There are plenty of winter sports to engage in, or you can enjoy a pleasant walk around the beautiful Kinney Reservoir, or camping out at Lake Alpine. Winter has just got even better.
