"Snow"lympics!

Vancouver 2010 Winter Games

The DC area has seen a lot of winter in the past few months, and now we have a reason to celebrate the season with the rest of the world: the 2010 Winter Olympics!

Held every four years, the Winter Olympics is a multi-sport competition that features winter sports held on snow and ice. Ice Hockey, Figure Skating, and Snowboarding are just a few of the events you can watch. The Olympics are well under way, and will continue until Feb 28, 2010. You can get information on all your favorite winter sports at Vancouver 2010.

And of course, you can always come to the Childrens division to check out books on the Winter Olympics and other sports. From Tacky and the Winter Games to Freeze Frame: a Photographic History of the Winter Olympics, we have the "nice" books about ice!
