Essay Fiesta Says You Should Stand Up For The Book Bike

Essay Fiesta loves many things, two of which are books and bikes. So naturally we are inclined to absolutely swoon over the Book Bike.

Operated by Gabriel Levinson since July 2008, the Book Bike cruises to Chicago’s park with a mobile library in tow. Book are free for the reading and the taking. There is no exchange of money. Just like a library!

Unfortunately, Gabriel recently had a run in with the Chicago Park District, which basically had him stop operations pending some sort of permit. We at Essay Fiesta feel this is a Chicago-style shakedown and that the Book Bike should be free to, well, ride free.

If you support Gabriel and what he’s doing, feel free to contact him and the Chicago Park District, and tell them you support what he’s doing.
