What is the Bookbike?

The Bookbike gives out free books, library cards,  and information about library and literacy programs, as well as bike maps and information about bicycling events.

We have one Bookbike that goes out from Joel D. Valdez Main Library on monthly visits as well as showing up at special events. We recently added two more Bookbikes to our fleet to serve the neighborhoods surrounding the Eckstrom-Columbus Library and the Santa Rosa Library.

In the first year, the Bookbike volunteers went to 91 events, rode 250 miles, talked to 16,046 people, and gave away 11,276 books!
