Bike Library

The Oakland Public Library has three Bike Libraries. If you find a Bike Library, you can get a library card, check out a book, or find out what events are coming up.

The first OPL Bike Library was designed by local builder Kick Trailer in 2013. It has two sides of cascading shelves to display books face-out while in motion. There is a custom shelf for a Bluetooth speaker. The pyramid structure opens up for storage.
 
The Friends of the Oakland Public Library funded the second and third Bike Libraries. They are smaller and can pass through doorways.
