Our Mission

The mission of the Arcata Library Bike Program is to promote the use of bicycles as a safe, efficient and environmentally sound means of transportation. Our  program works to inspire people to incorporate bicycling into a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We enact our mission by providing bicycles in convenient locations, and providing assistance with bicycle repairs in a learning oriented atmosphere. We also offer free bicycles to individuals who, because of economic situations, would not otherwise have access to a bicycle
