Meet the Book Peddler

Stephen Wright on a bike pulling the Book PeddlerThanks to a grant from the Wright Memorial Public Library Foundation, Wright Library's Book Peddler will support the Library’s efforts to take the Library out into the community. Look for it at the Oakwood Farmer’s Market, community events, parks, block parties, and more!

The Book Peddler debuted at That Day in May on May 19, 2018. It was designed and created by local residents Bill Rieger and Stephen Wright. Rieger, a bicycle enthusiast and Wright Library patron, designed the graphics while Wright, the great nephew of the Wright Brothers, completed the woodwork of the book cabinet that attaches to the bike.

The bike will soon be equipped with a Mobile Hot Spot and tablet, allowing patrons to register for cards and check out materials on the spot.
