EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- If you don't have time to visit a library, don't worry, the library may be coming to you.

The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is launching a new BookBike Service, which is a trailer pulled by a bike that holds up to 100 items.

The BookBike will travel to the downtown Farmers Market, Sounds Like Summer Concert Series in Phoenix Park and other special events.

Pamela Westby, the Library Director, says that BookBike will offer many services.

"We can do checkout circulation, and we can register people for library cards and help people with downloading items such as free music downloads and ebooks. It's really a mini library on wheels," said Westby.

The BookBike is only the second known BookBike service in Wisconsin.
