Out and about, even with cold weather!

Rochester Public Library’s award-winning BookBike is now in push-cart mode for the cold season! You can see the BookBike at various events and requested downtown locations. Visitors to the BookBike can sign up for a library card, check out materials, learn about RPL’s digital services, or chat with library staff about programs and events. See our upcoming schedule on the Events Calendar or on the right-hand side of this page.


RPL’s BookBike program was funded in part with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, through a Community Collaboration grant from Southeast Libraries Cooperating (SELCO).

For more information about the BookBike program, visit the ALSC Blog. If you have questions about the BookBike or would like to schedule a visit to your location or event, please contact Heather.

RPL’s BookBike was the 2015 City Category winner for the Local Government Innovation Awards presented by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.  This video highlights the program:
