Street Books Gears Up for Summer Shifts

Street Books has been busy behind the scenes these last few months, sprucing up our bicycle library and getting organized for summer 2013. In February we had a great event with Sisters of the Road, in which heart-shaped cookies were consumed, books were distributed, and Valentine cards were given to sweethearts, (these cards weighed about 2 pounds each due to the glitter used by the 3rd grade class who donated them -- it was marvelous). This summer, we'll add another shift to our schedule so that we can serve Portland's east side. To that end, street librarian Diana Rempe and I biked the Burnside route today, and scouted for possible bike parking for the new library shift there. More news on that to come.

Finally, Street Books is mentioned in an article with Goodnet called Four Awesome Ventures That Feature Bicycles. Check it out.

As always, we thank you for your ongoing support, and hope we see you this summer. Stop by a shift anytime (schedule will be posted later in May).
