Meyer Supports Street Books!

So very grateful at the news that the Meyer Memorial Trust will support Street Books with a $15k grant. Besides being a solid vote of confidence, this helps ensure that our program will continue to grow steadily, and to provide books to those who live outside or at the margins. Thanks, Meyer! Below you'll see our own Ben Hodgson, rocking the house at the Lit Hop reading last night. Ben's stories of his time as an "outdoorsman" have inspired and enlightened audiences ranging from students at Lewis & Clark College to kids at Southwest Charter.


Good News!

Street Books is ramping up for summer #5 (!), and we have good news to share: We are thrilled to announce that  Barb and Joel at Splendid Cycles have donated a shiny, new & fully built-up Bullitt cargo bike to Street Books, to help us expand our reach in the city, and keep our operation going, rain or shine. The talented Jeff Lauten at Badger Bikes will build us a beautiful, water-tight box.  Though we dearly love our first bike, (pictured below, with Street Librarian Redd Moon), we recognize the wisdom in having a second bike that is less creaky, and can go farther, faster. We are  so thankful for the donation. Street Books launches the summer shifts on June 2. Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, tune in to KBOO's Bike Show  this Wednesday (May 6), to hear an interview with Street Librarian Diana Rempe & Street Books board member & Inventory Specialist, Ben Hodgson. Ben is bound to work in a few bad puns.
