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.
