BICYCLE BOOKMOBILE

"Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There's something wrong with a society that drives a car to work out in a gym."

                                                                              Bill Nye the Science Guy

Pedal Positive Custom Cycle Fabrication

     Public libraries across the country are taking advantage of a bright, clean, and green new way to promote community outreach. Bicycle bookmobiles, bookbikes, bikemobiles, and bookcycles are just a few names given to a pedal powered branch library that can penetrate into the parks, schools, and neighborhoods to showcase what the library has to offer. Festivals, fairs, and community events are where these bookmobiles shine. Themed materials can be brought right to the people and displayed in an eye catching way. Pedal one into a school and watch the kids faces light up.

Pedal Positive has fabricated custom bicycle bookmobiles since 1999 for many public libraries, universities, community colleges, and organizations on an international scale. Alamosa and Aspen Public Libraries, Denver Public Library, Longmont and Loveland Public Libraries, Pikes Peak Library District, Glenwood and Grand Junction Public Libraries are among some of the Colorado libraries to sport a bookbike. California, Michigan, Arizona, Iowa, Utah, Wisconsin, Idaho, and British Columbia are utilizing Pedal Positive bookbikes as well. This type of community outreach has appeal with both the young and young-at-heart.  Bookbikes encourage all who interact with them to visit their local library, see what is new, and experience what can't be downloaded on the internet. 

     Other institutions and businesses around the country have purchased bookbikes as a unique and creative way to promote themselves. For example F.L.O.W. the Feminist Library On Wheels has been pedaling their message around Los Angeles since 2014, the American Jewish University is utilizing one at their Brandeis campus in the Simi valley with books and other media services. The University of Colorado  and Glendale Community College are using Pedal Positive bookbikes on their campuses in an effort to broaden their educational arsenal.
