Brooklyn Public Library’s Bike the Branches
This sounds like a really great event:
Join Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, May 11 for the Bike The Branches—a fun and adventurous one-day bike ride to benefit the Brooklyn Public Library. Experience Brooklyn and BPL like never before, while connecting with family and fellow Brooklynites as you ride to and through our network of 60 neighborhood libraries. Get your passport stamped at each branch—or as many as you can—to be entered into a drawing to win fun prizes. The first 100 people that register will be entered into a special drawing. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you as your ride for BPL!
Take a tour of Brooklyn’s literary history, culinary highlights or architectural gems on one of our suggested routes, or create your own path to explore the borough and the neighborhood libraries that serve each community. Throughout the day, stop in at select neighborhood libraries to recharge and enjoy entertainment and fun activities
The best part about Bike the Branches is that it’s not a race, it’s a ride created by you , so you can ride as an individual, with a group of friends, or with your school group — and you can bike at your own pace – walking, skateboarding and scooting welcome. Please visit our website at http://www.bklynpubliclibrary.org/bikethebranches to learn more and register.
Bike the Branches is a part of our annual Support the Branches spring campaign (formerly known as Support our Shelves). All proceeds from Support the Branches and Bike the Branches help Brooklyn Public Library bring vital services, resources and programs to every neighborhood in Brooklyn.
How nice that the Brooklyn Public Library is embracing the growing number of families who get around by bicycle!
