Spokes 'n' Words

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the book bike is only available on a limited basis. For more information, please email

Spokes ’n’ Words is a tricycle with a cabinet on the rear where users will be able to check out library books and materials, get a library card, participate in storytimes, and receive information about library programs and services (please note that checked out materials need to be returned at the library, not at the book bike).

Spokes ’n’ Words features an umbrella for sun and rain protection as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot for on-the-spot tech questions. It runs on more than just sentences; Spokes ’n’ Words is powered by both its rider and an e-assist motor to help the book bike up and down those notoriously steep North Vancouver hills!

The book bike is a partnership program between the Library and the City of North Vancouver’s Placemaking team, PLAY, an initiative designed to activate public city spaces. The bike was built by Pedal Positive, a small company based in Colorado.
