Winter Sports

Did you know New Hampshire has a grand winter sports tradition? In 1883 the first hockey game between students was played at Concord’s St. Paul’s School and much of the early history of skiing in the United States takes place in New Hampshire. If you have an interest in winter sports Leach Library has the materials that can help you carry on this New Hampshire tradition. The library’s winter sports collection helps you improve your skills, learn how to coach, figure out the best ski destinations, and appreciate the history of your game of choice.
