Check Out That Bike

Bike Library Who says there's no such thing as a free ride? At St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, students, faculty, staff, and community members--anyone with a campus library card--can check out one of ten bicycles gratis for up to two days. Since the library can already issue a fine or hold up grades for late returns, there's no deposit or paperwork required. The program, which began last fall, has been "wildly popular," says university spokesperson Macreena Doyle. "As soon as the bikes come in, they're out again."
