Library bike plus internet equals adventure!  The Grand County Public Library recently implemented an exciting project to expand local access to the internet and library services.  The project uses wifi hotspots, Chromebooks, and a wifi enabled book bike to connect with the community.  This presentation will discuss how we identified community partners, began circulating the mobile devices, used bikes to connect with a wide audience, and fit the project into a busy public library schedule.
