Tour de DCPL VII

Library-themed bike racks, each says "read" in different languages.

This is my third year doing the Tour de DCPL. This ride continues to have appeal for me because it’s a ride that highlights libraries in the area, and the locations change every year.

This year, we went to a couple of libraries outside the DC Public Library system, in nearby Montgomery County, Maryland. We started at the Takoma Park (DC) branch, the oldest in the DCPL system. We then made our way to the Juanita E. Thornton Shepherd Park library, and received a special police escort to the Takoma Park (MD) Library in the town’s community center. We took the scenic Sligo Creek Trail over to the newly built Silver Spring Library.

The tour went on to the Chevy Chase and Tenley-Friendship libraries, but unfortunately, I had some pressing matters at home to take care of, so I cut out early and made my way back home.

I took pictures on Instagram, and my Flickr set is here. As always, many thanks to the DC Public Library staff for organizing this ride.
