Library Outreach shifts gears with new BookBike

Rochester bookbike 2015-04Rochester Public Library announces the launch of the BookBike outreach program. RPL’s BookBike, a little library on wheels, will visit locations within a one-mile radius of the downtown library this spring, summer and fall. Pulled by library staff on bicycles along nearby bike paths and lanes, RPL’s BookBike will offer library books, library cards, program information, assistance with digital materials, bike trail maps and fun incentives for kids.

Families and kids of all ages can “Meet the BookBike” in the Rochester Public Library auditorium on Thursday, April 2nd Saturday, May 2nd at 10:30am. Programming partners, We Bike Rochester and Olmsted County Public Health, will deliver special bicycle safety programs and fun bike activities on both days.

Visit the BookBike at many area locations to get a library card, check out some “wheelie” good books or just to say, “Hey, nice bike!”.

The BookBike was funded in part with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, through a Community Collaboration grant from SELCO for Library Legacy activities.
