Connecticut: Borrowing Bicycles at the Fairfield Public Library Under Consideration
From the CT Post:
Town residents may soon be able to check out a bicycle from the Fairfield Public Library as easily as checking out a book.
The Health Department, in conjunction with the library, has received a $10,463 grant from the state for a pilot bike-share program with the goal of getting residents active and healthy.
The Board of Selectmen, however, last week put the brakes on authorizing acceptance of the grant and asked for more details on how the program would work.
The board is expected to vote on the proposal at its Wednesday meeting.
