Libros Schmibros Lending Library is a Boyle Heights based project that champions the transformative value of literature in everyday lives. This September we’re launching Bicycle Libraries, a unique volunteer opportunity.
On Fridays and Saturdays in September we propose to roll out a fleet of specially outfitted bikes with the capacity to carry up to 40 books apiece. Volunteers are asked to take the bikes to locations in Boyle Heights and East LA, giving away books they’ve handpicked to the general public.

Libros is taking a little hiatus, from August 2 to 26, 2015. We will return on August 27, 2015.
We’ll be getting #BICYCLELIBRARIES ready to roll out when we return. We’ll keep in touch during the break. If you need to get in touch, reach out via Twitter, Facebook or the website. Thanks for your patience.

Libros will be closed Saturday July 18, 2015 while we get ready for the party. See you Sunday!
