Kids Bike Library


Need a bigger bike? Come to the Kids Bike Library (KBL) at the Bike Kitchen to exchange old kids bikes for a better fitting ride.

The KBL launches on May 23rd, 2018 and will be running every Wednesday throughout the summer.

KBL ends on August 29th. Come to the Wrap Up Party from 4pm – 6pm. We’ll have free ice cream from Earnest.

How it works:

The KBL is similar to a regular library, but with bikes! On Wednesdays from 10am – 6pm at The Bike Kitchen, kids and youth can come trade a bike they have outgrown for one their size (includes bikes with 20” wheels or smaller). Unlike a regular library, you can keep the bike for as long as you need it without having to worry about renewing.

Access to the Kids Bike Library is free for AMS Bike Co-op members.* Don’t have a bike? No problem! We also provide bikes to children and youth by-donation, even if you don’t have one to swap. If you’re interested in swapping a kids bike, just bring it to the Bike Kitchen from 10am – 6pm on Wednesdays and ask about the Kids Bike Library.

Please note that all bikes in the Kids Bike Library are donations from various sources. Each bike is safety checked at the Bike Kitchen. That being said, the Bike Co-op cannot guarantee the quality of any donated bike.

*if the membership fee presents a financial barrier, please email to request that it be waived

Want to get involved?

We’re always looking for bike donations and volunteers to help us build bikes and provide tune-ups from 4pm – 6pm on Wednesdays. If you’re interested in supporting the Kids Bike Library or have questions about the program, please contact
