UNT librarians Kris Helge and Susan Whitmer recently took part in the Texas Library Association’s first Cycling for Libraries event in San Antonio.

The event helped to kick off the association’s annual conference.

Cycling for Libraries is an international movement to raise awareness of libraries’ roles in community education and to provide networking opportunities for library professionals.

The event began at San Antonio’s Riverwalk bike trail with an itinerary that included two innovative libraries on a 20-mile route. The first destination was Bibliotech, the all-digital library. Bibliotech librarians highlighted the features of this born-digital facility: computers, e-readers, smart boards, interactive furniture, reading room, and café. Bibliotech’s mission is to bring digital literacy to Bexar County.
