The Street Books Bicycle, With the Pit Crew

Fresh out of the Mercy Corps building this morning, this librarian discovered one very flat tire on the mobile Street Library. Fortunately help was right around the corner, in the form of Waterfront Bicycles. They have a seriously welcoming, can-do approach, and they had me biking away on a new tire in the space of 15 minutes. Plus they didn't let me pay them for labor. Hats off to the great people at Waterfront Bicycles. While I was waiting, a bearded man named Sonny said, "Are you the street librarian?" I said, "Yes," and he handed me two dollars. "For incidentals," he said. Thank you Sonny. Below: Jeff & mechanic Katherine Pauman do the hard work.
