Featured Collection March 2012
Jump on the sports bandwagon with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's collection of books and DVDs. Impress your friends with trivia, take up a new activity (may we suggest curling) and relive the achievements of the world's greatest athletes.
Libraries might not seem like the best place to learn about rules or enjoy sports action, but in fact we offer a wide variety of stories, biographies and informational books on lots of different athletic activities. So when you'd rather read about a game than participate in one, check out the list below or ask your local referee -- I mean librarian -- for a suggestion.
Please enjoy these fiction titles. They offer an honest and unflinching introduction to the world of organized play.
No, Pittsburghers, it's not time for football. The spring season is synonymous with baseball's spring training. Add to that equation NHL playoffs, college hoops, and NBA basketball and you should have plenty to sink your teeth into. Check out this list of fiction and non-fiction titles that have something to do with springtime sports.
Get into spring training with these classic movies about America's favorite "pastime" -- a game that is much easier to play than football. Even I can understand the rules.
