The Newark Library is proud to host The BikeMobile at our Family Cycling Rodeo on Saturday July 18th from 10 AM to 1 PM! 

BikeMobile will be on site repairing bikes for FREE! If your bike or your child’s bike is making one of those mystery sounds or collecting dust because it has a flat tire, bring it to the Newark Library on July 18th.  The BikeMobile can fix flat tires, adjust brakes and gears, and even replace broken or worn out parts like chains, seats, and tires. The only thing it can’t do is replace missing wheels or gears. While the mechanics work on your bike they’ll explain how it works and how to keep it running smooth.  In addition to getting a tune up, your child can add some style to their ride by adding colored tape to the frame at the decoration station.  

Sign up in advance by contacting the library to reserve your spot, starting July 1st!  Bike or no bike, everyone is welcome to attend to learn about maintenance, safety, and more!

Teens: Do you want a say in what kind of activities the library has for you?

Join our Teen Advisory Group! You can make new friends and make a difference in the community at the same time (and earn community service hours!)

There will be FUN, SNACKS and an honest chat about improving library services and organizing programs for teens.

We meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Conference room.
