The Brooklyn Public Library is hosting “Bike the Branches,” a day-long bike tour through BPL’s network of 60 neighborhood libraries, on Saturday, May 11 (rain date: May 18). Proceeds will support Brooklyn library services, including programming, technology and collections.
Riders set their own route and pace, although BPL will offer suggested routes that focus on the waterfront, literary history and library architecture. Select branches along the way will offer programing and activities, including music, magic shows and a transportation workshop.
The tour ends at the Central Library Branch in Grand Army Plaza, with music, entertainment and prizes from 5-7 p.m.. Registration for the tour is $20 for adults, $15 for students and $10 for children. Sign-up is available at BPL.
