Bike for Books

The Concord Free Public Library is encouraging children, teens, and adults to bike to the library with the Bike for Books initiative. Every time you bike to the Main Library or the Fowler Branch, show your helmet to a library staff member to stamp your bike card. After 10 stamps, you earn a free $5 gift certificate to Bedford Farms. Thanks to the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library for sponsoring this program.
