Books on Bikes

Books on Bikes is a community outreach and literacy program created by Charlottesvill​e City School librarians and teachers to bring books to children in Charlottesvill​e. We hope to not only bring books and a love of reading to the children of Charlottesvill​e, but also develop a relationship between Charlottesvill​e residents and the local school community.

Books on Bikes has spread to other chapters and has earned media coverage as far away as New Zealand!
