Boulder Junction Public Library

Bike to the Library Week July 24-29

Bike to the Library week at the Boulder Junction Public Library is July 24-29, 2017. Ride your bike to the library and we’ll give you a free frozen treat and you’ll be entered to win some fun bike-related prizes – including the Grand Prize, a Saris Bones 2-Bike Bike Rack. Plus, if you bike to the library on Tuesday, July 25, you’ll get a voucher for a free book from our book sale. Participants should show their bike helmet to be eligible for the prizes.

Bike to the Library Week promotes healthy bodies, a healthy earth and healthy libraries. Biking to the library is a great way to get out and enjoy the pristine beauty of the Northwoods. It also promotes less use of fossil fuels as well as improving a person's overall health.

Wisconsin's Bike to the Library program is sponsored by the Wisconsin Bike Fed, UW-Madison Continuing Studies, the South Central Library System, UW-Madison Global Health Institute, Saris Cycling Group, Planet Bike, and Bicycle Benefits.

Bike to the Library is free and is intended for all members of the community. For more information, call the Boulder Junction Public Library at 715-385-2050.
