Reimagine Libraries: Book Bike

"Everyone has the right to build and cherish a private library."

With this in mind, Gabriel Levinson of Chicago created the Book Bike: a custom-built tricycle stocked with 200 lbs of free books. Since July of 2008, the Book Bike has been responsible for placing over 3,000 new and used books into peoples’ hands. Weather-permitting, you’ll find the Book Bike at Chicago public parks on the weekends; anyone who wants a book is invited to take something home to read.
