Why Bicycle Library Tours?
The Library 2 Library Bicycle Loop Tour is a fun tour for library lovers and bicycle enthusiasts. With the growing momentum of bicycle awareness, advocacy, and infrastructure in the Silicon Valley area, libraries are pursuing innovative bicycle-related services and programming. Hosting library bicycle tours increases the visibility of our libraries and gets librarians out into the community.
Library bicycle tours appeal to a broad demographic including young adults, adults, and families. They bring people of all ages together and highlight the importance and significance of the library’s role in the community and in bringing people together. Additionally, library bicycle tours get people of all ages out of cars and moving, showing that bicycling is a viable form of transportation to the library and everyday use.
