Book bikes expand library resources to Yolo County readers

From The Sacramento Bee

“People drink beer on brew bikes in Sacramento and shop at a tricycle-based produce stand in West Sacramento. Now they can borrow books from bike libraries in Yolo County.The novelty of anything on pedal-powered wheels has extended to literary lovers, as three new traveling libraries have begun rotating through the county to encourage reading and reach communities that lack borrowing access.To kids, the bikes look like they could be selling ice cream – and they sound that way, too, with a bell that attracts curious families, according to Woodland Library Services Director Greta Galindo.”
