Colorado Sports

Sports and recreation are a huge part of life for many Coloradans. One of the books in our collection, Colorado: A Sports History, shows that it has been this way for a very long time. This book gives the history of all kinds of sports and recreational activities in our state. Other publications you can find in our collection go into detail on specific sports, such as They Came to Play: A Photographic History of Colorado Baseball. Additionally, you can find a large number of Department of Natural Resources publications on outdoor sports such as hunting, fishing, biking, and boating. And of course we can’t forget skiing, perhaps Colorado’s most famous recreational activity. There are a number of publications in our library that deal with skiing, including several ski tourism studies. You can even find in our collection a book on sports nutrition, Food for Sports. So whether you’re interested in summer sports or winter sports, our library can help you find out more about sporting in our state.
