Borrow a Bike From the Library!
The Comstock Park Branch Library is once again offering bicycles for checkout. The library has four Breezer Uptown Ex8-speed bicycles available for circulation until approximately October 31. All are step through (women’s) cross bar style. The bikes come with baskets, bike locks, and keys. The bicycles are available for up to two days checkout to adults 18 or older as well as to teens who are accompanied by an adult who can sign waivers for them. Bikes must be returned by closing time of the day they are due back. Overdue fines are $20 a day.
You must have a Kent District Library or Grand Rapids library card and a photo ID to check out a bicycle. Borrowers sign a Bicycle Borrowing Agreement acknowledging financial responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged equipment. Borrowers may check out as many bikes as are available at the time. Although Michigan law doesn’t require bicyclists to wear a helmet, the library recommends customers bring their own helmet.
