LPLS launches ‘Go Lorain Bike Share’


The Lorain Public Library System (LPLS) launched the Go Lorain Bike Share program, a collaboration with Lorain County Public Health (LCPH), the Lorain County Metro Parks, and the Lorain County Community Action Agency, on May 18, 2019 at Better Block.


LPLS is the jumping off point for taking advantage of this free program. Stop in at the Main Branch and use your library card to check out one of the adult bikes available, courtesy of the Lorain Police Department. Helmets and locks will also be available to check out, so you can make the most of your ride around Lorain.


“We are so proud to be part of the Go Lorain bike share because it demonstrates the power of collaboration bring new ideas and possibilities to the community,” LPLS Director Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz said.


Go Lorain is part of the Lorain Connected Collaborative, a group of partners headed by Lorain County Public Health working together to promote active transportation.


Health Education Specialist Kat Bray said LCPH was awarded a one-year $69,976 Safe Systems Innovation Grant through the National Safety Council’s Road to Zero initiative.


“The grant focuses on increasing safety for bicyclists and pedestrians, and a portion of this grant funded the Go Lorain Bike Share,” Ms. Bray said. “Many people rely on biking and walking to get where they need to go. It’s important to create an environment that supports it. That is why Lorain Connected and LCPH strive to make biking a healthy, safe and reliable transportation option.”
