Oct 07, 2005 — Students at St. Lawrence University can check out books and bicycles at the library this year. Modeled on bike loan programs that are common in cities, the "Green Bikes" program is unique in that it uses the campus library as the check-out point. A pilot bike loan program began at SLU last year, but had difficulties because there was no good way to monitor use and returns. The student Environmental Awareness Organization bought 10 new bicycles this fall. Kira Krumhansl, one of the student organizers of the "Green Bikes" program, tells Todd Moe that the idea is a hit on campus.
