Thank you for making the 4th annual Bike the Branches the best yet!

On May 7, 2016 hundreds of riders took to the streets and brought their celebratory energy to all of the branches they visited. Thousands more visited their local libraries for activities and programs. From Greenpoint to Kings Bay, the smiles from riders and visitors young and young-at-heart were tremendous proof of the spirit of our community. Best of all, every dollar raised goes to Brooklyn's library branches — supporting local programming and events that you love and that make our neighborhoods thrive.

Bike the Branches is a key component of the Library's Support the Branches spring fundraising campaign to raise critical dollars for library programs and services. You can still donate to ensure that the doors to discovery and opportunity remain open for all Brooklynites.

Bike the Branches is made possible by the following generous donors and partners:
