Beginning this month, The Seattle Public Library will bring Books on Bikes as a full service library to outdoor locations across the city. With Books on Bikes, you can:

  • Sign up for a Library card.
  • Find out about free Library programs in your neighborhood, including story times for children, activities for teens and classes for adults.
  • Learn how to access e-books, magazines, music and more straight to your smartphone, tablet or e-reader.
  • Tell a librarian a little bit about reading likes (and dislikes!), then receive an email from Your Next 5 Books with personalized reading recommendations.
