Outreach Services - Kermit, the Bikemobile




Mission Statement: To have fun, to meet the community wherever the community may gather, and to provide library services wherever possible.

Kermit the Bikemobile

Kermit arrived in Santa Cruz in 2016 and was made possible through a Pacific Library Partnership grant, the Burgeon Group, and the Spokesman Bicycles shop in Santa Cruz.

You can check out books, get a library card, and talk with a library staff person whenever Kermit is out and about. Kermit can usually be found at community events, farmer’s markets, parades, and, sometimes, helping the many Little Free Libraries by providing donated paperbacks. And, although Kermit is a bit frog-like, he doesn’t like rain so you won’t often see him in November through March.

 Kermit the Bikemobile

"When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder? Why Wonder,
I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it is what I want to be!"

~Joe Raposo, “Bein’ Green” 1970
