  • Yes, Pima County employees, you too can ride the Bookbike

    The Pima County Bookbike is a volunteer opportunity to:
    • Share your love of bikes and books
    • Get Wellness credits with both exercise points and volunteer points
    • Demonstrate how bikes are effective modes of transportation 
    • Get out in the community and put a human face to government 
    What is the Bookbike all about?

    bookbikeThe Bookbike gives out free books, library cards, reading glasses, and bike maps. We provide information about the Library and our literacy programs, as well as bicycling events. The Bookbike goes out on regular monthly visits as well as special events such as the Tucson Festival of Books, Cyclovia, the Parade of Lights, and more!
    The Bookbike goes out around a five-mile radius of three libraries: Joel D. Valdez Main Library downtown, Eckstrom-Columbus Library (22nd and Columbus), and Santa Rosa Library (10th Ave and 22nd).
    Pima County Bike Ambassadors, Library staff, and Pima County employees from all departments go out with volunteers who ride on their own bikes.
