(FINALIST 2019) Young people can borrow outdoor sports equipment for up to two weeks at a time.

Sundsvall is a community that is proud of its outdoor sports tradition. However, not everyone can afford to participate in outdoor activities. At the Library of Sports you cannot borrow books, but you can borrow sports equipment.

Young people under the age of 25 can borrow skis, snowboards, skates and other sports equipment for up to two weeks. This enables young people to try out a range of different outdoor sports, without having to first make a financial investment. The Library of Sports project is part of Sundsvall’s social investment fund, which was initiated by Bodil Hansson.
