The Pima County Public library Bookbike is a three-wheeled bicycle that provides free services to the community where they are. Library staff, bookbike pilots, and volunteers ride throughout local neighborhoods to visit people and give them free books, free reading glasses (donated by the Downtown Lions Club), bike maps and information about the library. We regularly visit locations around Tucson including the Armory Park Senior Center, Casa Maria Soup Kitchen, Eon Youth Lounge, Primavera and the Boys and Girls Club.
You can help the Bookbike by donating books, volunteering to ride along with the Bookbike or making a donation so the program can purchase more high demand materials such as books in Spanish or cookbooks.
Stats: From the start of the Bookbike in 2012 until August 2019 we have attended 1159 events, ridden 2987 miles, interacted with 71, 289 people and given away 86,040 books.
