    Contact: Tamecca Brewer   510-284-0640   tbrewer@aclibrary.org
   

We want to see more people riding their bikes to the library! We know bikes need a lot of maintenance and that’s why we’ve invited The Safe Routes to Schools new BikeMobile to provide Free Tune Ups for everyone at the library!

If your bike is making one of those mystery sounds or collecting dust because it has a flat tire, bring it to the library.  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 smoothly.  In addition to getting a tune up, children can add some style to their ride by adding colored tape to the frame at the decoration station.   Bike or no bike, everyone is welcome to attend to learn about maintenance, safety, and more!

Synopsis

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self described leading man of that ensemble LEGO Batman stars in his own big screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
