You'll find more than books at the Fort Collins, Colorado, library.

The library also has bikes.

The city's new public library has 50 bikes available for free week-long loans.

Officials hope to expand the two-wheel fleet to 200 bikes.

The project is funded by a $132,000 federal grant to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion.

Library bike-fleet manager Rafael Cletero says if they can get 25 people to borrow bikes, that's 25 less cars on the road.
