May is National Bike Month and we like to celebrate with bicycle themed programming at the library. The 2016 National Bike Month library program calendar will be available soon.

We are especially pleased to be hosting bike repair clinics throughout the month at Lamond-Riggs Library, Northwest One Library, Petworth Library, Takoma Park Library, Tenley-Friendship Library, and Deanwood Library with our partners Gearin' Up Bicycles.
