Over the summer, the Nevada County Library launched the Recreation Collection with outdoor games and equipment available for checkout. With your library card you can check out a disc golf set if you’re headed to Condon Park, a bird-watching kit for your hike along Deer Creek, or a backyard game like badminton, Spike Ball, and giant Jenga.
As the winter season sets in, Nevada County Library continues to expand this Recreation Collection. Are you looking to get outside in the snow? Now you can check out a pair of snowshoes, available in various sizes! Looking for something to do indoors? Check out a board game like Ticket to Ride, Bananagrams, or a Dungeons and Dragons starter kit. Are you looking to develop a new skill? Check out an acoustic guitar and access beginning guitar lessons through our online resources like LinkedIn Learning or Coursera. What is it that you want to do this winter season? The Library probably has a resource for you – talk to your local library staff for personalized recommendations.
The Recreation Collection, in alignment with the Board of Supervisor’s new Recreation Objective, aims to provide equitable access to recreation opportunities, encouraging Nevada County residents to envision the Library as a community space where access to the means of socialization is just as important as the free and unimpeded exchange of information.
Recreation Collection items check out for one week, and a waiver must be signed by the cardholder or a parent/guardian if the cardholder is under the age of 18. For more information, visit www.NevadaCountyCA.gov/RecreationCollection or call (530) 265-7050.
