Book Bike

Omaha Public Library is committed to not only inviting the community into its libraries, but also to meeting them where they are with needed library services. Thanks to funding through the Omaha Public Library Foundation, the library will be able to travel to community events using its Book Bike! The Book Bike offers a variation to traditional bookmobile services, delivering books, information, library cards, and so much more to the community. The custom-built bicycle and book trailer will be stocked with books to borrow and give away at special neighborhood events such as street fairs, parades, festivals, parks and outdoor concerts. The cyclist will also have an iPad to sign people up for library cards and to demonstrate how to download eBooks to an eReader device. The bike will be equipped with mobile Wi-Fi, allowing those nearby to connect with a free, secure signal.
