The Orange County Library System (Website) has rolled out a new mobile book service this month.

The new Book Bike was made possible via a $100,000 donation from the Sorosis of Orlando Woman’s Club in January of this year, following the sale of their longtime clubhouse in Lake Eola Heights. The club helped to found Orlando’s first circulating library in 1893 and launched the bus-based Orange County Bookmobile in 1949, which brought books to Orange County residents who were unable to make the trip downtown.

The Book Bike will be making the rounds at outreach events all month, including the upcoming 2023 Kids and Family Expo (Website) at the Orange County Convention Center on Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13.
