Join Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) on Saturday, May 11 for Bike the Branches—a fun and adventurous one-day bike ride to benefit the Library. Experience the borough and BPL like never before, while connecting with family, friends and fellow Brooklynites as you bike our network of 60 neighborhood libraries that serve each community.

Choose your own route and set your own pace as you visit as many of our branches as you want, or follow one of our suggested routes to take a tour of Brooklyn’s storied waterfront, literary history, culinary highlights or architectural gems. Sign up to ride as an individual or with friends and co-workers, and ask your friends and family to sponsor your ride for BPL.

Get your “passport” stamped at as many branches as you can visit between 10am and 5pm. Throughout the day, stop in at select branches to recharge and enjoy entertainment and fun activities, and top off the day at Central Library’s Finish Line Celebration from 5-7pm—you won’t want to miss it!

Register today to Bike the Branches and support Brooklyn Public Library with a rewarding day of wellness, literacy and community.

The first 100 people who register will be entered into a special prize drawing! Space is limited. Please register early.

Bike the Branches is part of our annual Support the Branches spring campaign (formerly known as Support our Shelves). All proceeds from Support the Branches and Bike the Branches help fund Brooklyn Public Library’s work to bring vital services, resources and programs to every neighborhood in Brooklyn. With your dollars, our collections grow, computer equipment is upgraded and more community programs are developed and enjoyed by our diverse populations. For more information, please contact [masked].

Thank you for your support.

    Why not meetup at the Grand Army Plaza Brooklyn Library. I was there for the 1st time yesterday for our helmet fitting event. I'm ashamed I didn't know of Grand Army Plaza branch. I would join you tomorrow but I'm working.
