The Book Bike is a Fernie Heritage Library summer staple, bringing books to everyone all around town.

Join librarians as we hop on our bikes to launch our Fernie Book Bike 2018 Programs in conjunction with #biketoworkbc day. ALL ARE WELCOME! We will meet in the library garden with our bikes, bells and balloons, on a scheduled yet leisurely route around town, ending at The Bridge Bistro. All bikes and riders welcome to join us for the entire ride, or at pick-up spots along the way. Peddle on!

All riders to wear bike helmets. Riders can start with us at the library parking lot at 4:00pm or may join us along the way at one of the eight stations throughout town indicated on the attached map. Each station will be well marked with green balloons and signage.
