VROOM WITH A VIEW TO READ­ING

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

YOUNG read­ers and staff at St Clair Li­brary re­ceived a rev-up from the Bi­b­lio Turismo li­brar­i­ans re­cently.

Bi­b­lio Turismo started in 2006 as a means for li­brar­i­ans who rode mo­tor­bikes to meet each other and spread joy once a year. The bot­tom line is the pro­mo­tion of lit­er­a­ture and fos­ter­ing of read­ing.

Biker Alan Flores re­counted his visit to St Clair Li­brary in a Bi­b­lio Turismo blog.

“St Clair is a li­brary I helped de­sign but never got to see it open as I re­signed be­fore it was com­pleted,” he wrote. “A nice small li­brary that fills an im­por­tant role in its com­mu­nity and filled with chil­dren at­tend­ing storytime while we were there.

“The li­brary su­per­vi­sor, Chen, found a way to get my bike in and a journo and pho­tog­ra­pher made the best of it. A young girl of­fered to be in a pic­ture or two. She had the cutest smile and was happy to pose for the cam­era­man.”
