Just in time for the warmer weather, Kent District Library (KDL) now offers bikes for checkout!
Sixteen of our branches plus our Service Center have four Breezer Uptown EX 8-speed bicycles available. (This service isn’t offered at our Spencer or Alpine branches because they are both located by extremely busy roads, which was a safety concern.)
Each of these snazzy bikes comes with a basket, a bike lock and key. Most of the branches offer two styles of bikes, those with a horizontal crossbar and those with a more diagonal, step-through crossbar. Although Michigan law doesn’t require you to wear a helmet, we strongly recommend you bring your own.
KDL Cruisers are available for checkout to anyone age 18 or older with a KDL card in good standing. We’ll have you sign a borrower’s agreement and waiver. You get to keep the bike for the day; just be sure to return it before the library’s closing time! Lock the bike and return the key inside.
We’d love to see what adventures you take our KDL Cruisers on! Please share your photos with us by tagging them #KDLCruisers #KDLibrary.
