HUBBLE SKATEBOARDS AND WASHOE COUNTY LIBRARIES ANNOUNCE BOOKS AND BOARDS SUMMER PROGRAM
Lectures to be Held at All Washoe County Libraries Throughout July

RENO, Nev. (TBA)—The Washoe County Libraries and Reno based company Hubble Skateboards have partnered for Books and Boards, an educational lecture series designed to introduce local kids to all aspects of the skateboard industry, beginning with the first lecture on Saturday, July 9 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Valleys Library.

The hour-long lectures, conducted by assorted members of the Hubble Skateboards Team, will instruct attendees on ways to get involved in skateboarding that go beyond riding skateboards. Students will learn about skateboard manufacturing, design, photography, video editing and a basic history of the art of skateboarding.

“This has to be one of the most rad partnerships I have seen a library make in the history of libraries,” said Rene Bonilla, co-founder and co-owner of Hubble Skateboards. “We are stoked that the Washoe County Libraries have invited us to spread the greatness of skateboarding to their visitors.”
