Random Excellence: St. George Bikelane Library


A line of books caught my eye while biking along 10th between Fraser and Main. Immediately, instinctively, I pulled over to take a look. Books are an addiction.

 

St. George Library has a wide range of books, CDs, DVDs and even a couple of neat random trinkets. There was no free internet at this library however, talking in outdoor voices was OK. In fact, both times I’ve been here, there have been friendly and interesting people. The first time, I met one of creators, Travis, who happened to be making some cool bike accessories for his niece. The second time, complete strangers engaged in conversation. It made me feel that “community” wasn’t just a buzz word or a mildly hilarious sitcom.

 

So, if you’re looking for something new to read or listen to, here’s a link to it’s location on a map. You might even make a new friend. Have you seen cool stuff around the city?
