Last week, 4 members of the Books on Bikes team, Mary Craig, Rebecca Flowers, Kellie Keyser, Katie Plunkett and our library supervisor Maria Lewis, headed to Columbus, Ohio to present at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National Conference. Ever since our proposal was accepted months ago, we have been anticipating this exciting opportunity to share our program with the nation’s school librarians.

On Saturday June 6, 2015, Books on Bikes held our 2nd annual bike parade. We had over 70 participants this year. Last year we had about 50, so we are growing! Students and their families decorated their bikes with flags, streamers, beads, and pinwheels.
To celebrate the first day of summer vacation, Books on Bikes held a bike parade from Clark Elementary School to the Jefferson Madison Regional Library central branch in downtown Charlottesville. The bike parade was also the debut of our Books on Bikes cargo bikes. We picked them up from Blue Wheel Bicycles just days before our parade. They are beautiful! We were ready to show them off and go for our first ride.
