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.
