What’s on board the Book Bike when library staff members pedal it to community events? The bike’s cargo hold is stocked with relevant materials—cookbooks and gardening manuals at the Farmers’ Market, for example, and children’s books at area park and daycare storytimes. And visitors can learn about library services and programs, use their library card to check out materials, and apply for a library card.
