Fall River Library begins free bicycle borrowing program



Need a way to get around while also getting some exercise during the warmer months? The Fall River Public Library is here to help!

Starting on June 24, patrons of the Fall River Public Library can take home not only books, music, and movies, but also bicycles! The Main Library, 104 North Main Street, has two bikes which can be borrowed, along with locks and safety helmets. Bikes will be available from May through October and can be borrowed for one week and renewed if no one else is waiting.

As part of its ongoing mission to serve the Fall River community, the library is offering these bikes in support of recreation and fitness, to expand library services and allow those who may not have access to bikes of their own to enjoy such scenic rides as the Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail. The bicycles are available seasonally; weather permitting, from May through October.

The bikes were donated by Mass in Motion. Anyone age 18 or older who has a Fall River Public Library card can borrow them. Helmets can be borrowed with the bikes, or riders can use their own. Riders must read and sign the library’s bicycle lending policy. Look for the bikes on display near the circulation desk!

For further information, visit the library or call the circulation desk at 508-324-2700, ext. 2.
