Tour de DCPL

A free bicycle tour of DC Public Libraries

Library staff discovered a great way to explore the ongoing transformations at the DC Public Libraryby bike.

The Tour de DCPL was born in 2010, a free community bike ride that visits several of our 26 library locationsEvery year, to celebrate National Bike Month, a group of library staff, advocates and community members strap on their bike helmets to help the library promote environmentally friendly transportation and explore how our libraries connect with the communities they serve. 

The 9th Tour de DCPL, on Saturday, June 30, 2018, will visit five neighborhood libraries in Northwest, Southeast and Southwest, and in Wards 2, 6, 5 and 7. Come join the ride; registration is open online now and the route can be found online as well. Please send an email with any questions.
