Millinocket Memorial Library offering free outdoors gear
If you're in the Millinocket region and want to go skiing or snowshoeing, the Millinocket Memorial Library can help.
Through their partnership with Outdoor Sport Institute, they have the Katahdin Gear Library.
Anyone with a library card can borrow the gear for a week at a time for free.
They have cross-country skis and snowshoes for adults and kids.
If you don't have a library card, just sign up for one, and take out the gear.
"We are really focusing on matching what we do with the needs of the area, and there are a lot of people coming and visiting. There are a lot of kids here. We want to really offer services that people want, and we got maps and stuff to just get people out."
As long as there is snow on the ground, the gear will be available.
