When communities share, their power stacks up.
Knowledge and learning belong to everyone. So should ease and accessibility when it comes to transportation. That's why through our partnership with Zipcar, we have Zipcars at ten of our neighborhood libraries:
- Bay Ridge
- Coney Island
- Kings Bay
- Park Slope
- Windsor Terrace
- Walt Whitman
Two Zipcars are available at each of these branches, and Bedford Library has three Zipcars available.
The Zipcar parking locations are part of an ongoing partnership between the library system and Zipcar. Because Zipcar supports communities through access to shared urban transportation, Library cardholders who sign up for Zipcar at zipcar.com/bpl receive $30 in free driving. As all vehicles in the Zipcar fleet have a unique name, the cars at our neighborhood library locations are named after famous Brooklyn writers, artists and musicians, like Walt Whitman, Lou Reed and Margaret Wise Brown.
The partnership also helps BPL raise critical funds in support of local programs at each branch, while providing Brooklyn residents with reliable transportation for trips in and outside of the city. It all stacks up to make a vibrant community with knowledge resources, less congestion, and more open spaces for all.
