Little Urban Bicycle Library

Citizens of London, cyclists, urbanists, and climate activists, look no further to find some of the best books about bike culture, city building, climate action, and more! These are books with facts and stories about the things you love — get to know our library and you’ll get to know us!

How it works

First, you’ll need an LBC Library Card: $5 non refundable one time fee helps us keep a small reserve to grow our library (or replace missing/damaged books! — stuff happens). This gives you access to borrow one book at a time. We don’t do late fees, but we’ll send a reminder if your book is overdue.

Second, come visit us, select the book from the library and pick up your book from the store (355 Clarence Street)! We’ll stamp a two week return date on the envelope (old school style).

Browse titles here before coming in and let us know what titles you think we’re missing.
