Location of 2018 Winter Olympics in color

Featured Maps! Winter Olympics of the Past

Theme for the week: Winter Olympics of the Past

February 8-23, 2018

Disappointed that you are not representing the United States in the Winter Olympics in South Korea? Show your passion for the Olympic Games instead by testing your knowledge of the past 34 years of Winter Olympics. Do you know which host city declared its independence from Yugoslavia 8 years after it hosted the Olympics? How about what country has hosted the Winter Olympics twice in the past 34 years? If you were able to answer both of those questions, you get a gold medal in Olympic knowledge, if you weren’t able to answer those questions, come into the Shields Library Map Collection room and train your brain with beautiful maps of Winter Olympics past.

Enjoy the Games!
