Book Bike

Ever seen a librarian pop a wheelie? Get ready to—the Book Bike is here!

A Bike? With Books?

We are very excited to introduce the Johnston community to the Johnston Public Library on wheels. The JPL Book Bike will allow us to provide library services like:

  • checking out library books
  • returning library books
  • signing up for library cards
  • Internet access via a WiFi hotspot

in locations all around Johnston. There are a couple bike book mobiles in other states, but to our knowledge, this is the first library bike book mobile in Iowa!

Interested in hosting a JPL Book Bike stop?
