CicLAvia and the Los Angeles Public Library

Inspired by the city of Bogotá, Colombia’s venerable and beloved Ciclovía program, which closes city streets to automobile traffic and opens them to pedestrians and bicycles for several hours on Sundays and holidays, Los Angeles’ CicLAvia program has helped more than 1 million people explore over 140 miles of road in the last 6 years. CicLAvia brings communities together and allows participants to experience their city streets in a new way.

Los Angeles Public Library had a booth at CicLAvia, Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) on Sunday, October 8. We spoke to more than 500 people, and signed up 65 CicLAvia participants for new library cards. Here are some photos from the event.
