Bike to the Library 2017

Summer is here and if you have patrons that ride to the library, consider participating in Bike to the Library 2017. Libraries are able to choose their own dates for Bike to the Library Week this year. On the official site, librarians can subscribe to the email list, register bike events, order free bike safety literature, and more.

At my library, we are celebrating Bike to the Library Week from July 24 - July 29 with two events. The first is a bike-themed storytime where one of our local police officers will read a story and bring the police bike in for children and their families to see and learn about it. The second event is a first for us - Bike Night @ the Library. There will be a police officer there with the police bike, a smoothie-bike (equipped with a pedal powered blender) from the Dodge County Blue Zones Project, drawings for bike-related door prizes, and volunteers on hand to tighten seats and handlebars, as well as to fill tires up.
