You could deliver books... on a bike!

Posted By on Fri, Jan 24, 2020 at 11:42 AM

We want YOU... to become a Bookbike volunteer!

Do you ♥ your Library? How about books, cycling, or helping your community? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Pima County Public Library has the perfect opportunity for you!

The Library's Bookbike gives out free books, library cards, and information about Library programs, as well as bike maps and information about bicycling events.

Our three Bookbike fleet operates within a five-mile radius of Joel D. Valdez Main Library, Sam Lena-South Tucson Library, and Eckstrom-Columbus Library. They go out on monthly visits to food truck stops, community organizations and housing, and even the Santa Cruz Farmer's Market! They also make stops at special events like the Tucson Festival of Books.

In our first eight years of operation (2012-2020), Bookbike staff and volunteers went to 1,213 events, rode 3,104 miles, talked to 75,483 people, and gave away 90,657 books!

Want to join us? Learn more at our next Bookbike Volunteer Orientations:

Saturday, February 1

Both orientations are held from 8:30 to 9:30 am at Joel D. Valdez Main Library.
