If you hadn’t heard, Bike The Branches is this Saturday, and offers bike lovers a two-wheeled tour of Brooklyn via our public libraries. Stop at as many branches as you can, get your event passport stamped at each spot and then head to Central Library where there’ll be a block party with awards, live music, food, beer, and activities for adults and kids alike.

In conjunction with this fun event, The Greenpoint Library (107 Norman Ave.) is going to be poppin’ all day, and they’ve got a robust schedule of events planned.

Jalapa Jar’s tasty breakfast tacos.

Starting at 10am, Jalapa Jar will be serving up Austin-style breakfast tacos, slathered in their fresh-made salsa. Tacos will be $4 each or you can get 2 for $7. If breakfast tacos aren’t your thing (and I don’t know why not), there will be other food vendors to check out too.

From 11am-4pm the library will be hosting their annual Book & Bake sale. If you buy a $20 library tote, you can fill it up with books! What a steal!

Then from 11am-1230pm there’ll be a poetry reading with poets from the Greenpoint Library Poetry Workshop, followed by a reception.


From 1-2:30 they’ll have a screenprinting workshop hosted by Anna O. Grant, The City Reliquary’s resident crafter. All supplies will be provided, but if you have something you want to print on, bring it!

Lastly, they’ll have music for kids with singer Suzi Shelton and musician Adam Bernstein from 3-4pm.

See you at The Greenpoint Library (107 Norman Ave.) on Saturday!
