Omaha Public Library launches book bike

Aug 6, 2014

The Omaha Public Library launched its book bike Tuesday. It's a variation on the traditional bookmobile that involves a bicycle and an attached trailer with books.

The Omaha World-Herald reports the public is allowed to check out books from the trailer and use an iPad to sign up for a library card. The bike will be at various events around Omaha, including street fairs, parades and festivals.

Officials say the bike is another form of outreach to the public.
