Sunnyvale gets mobile bike library

From Mercury News

” The Sunnyvale Public Library will soon hit the streets with a new mobile bicycle library complete with the ability to check out books, sign up new members and give away library-related goodies on the go.The library-on-wheels is a bright green electric bike with a yellow book trailer hitched to the back that can haul 25-50 pounds of books and other materials. It’s also a hot spot for free wireless Internet and is equipped with a tablet station where people can sign up for library cards.Librarian Christina Shin says similar mobile bikes are used at other Bay Area libraries like Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Los Gatos. Shin says it could be a tool to boost outreach while also promoting other city aims like healthy and green living.”
