Katahdin Gear Library – Snow

The Katahdin Gear Library (KGL) is a gear-lending library, outdoor adventure club, and public space for people of all ages to access equipment and tools, information and leadership, and to connect with people around a common interest in outdoor adventure and recreation.

Follow us on Facebook to stay tuned on our launch date for winter gear this season.


In the winter, patrons can borrow a variety of gear, including classic and skate skis and snowshoes.

Classic style and skate style skis are available.
  • To borrow skis or snowshoes, please visit the library during our hours of operation and ask for a gear check-out form.
  • Borrowers must be 18 years or older, have a valid Millinocket Memorial Library card, and provide photo identification.  (Borrowers under 18 must have a legal guardian 18 years or older present with a valid library card.)
  • Gear is due seven days after check-out. Gear cannot be renewed, and there is a fine of $1 per day that it is late. Following a gear checkout, borrowers must wait one week to check out skis or snowshoes again.

Snowshoe and cross country ski guides and videos are available below:
