16th Annual Kids Bike Swap!

Bike Works will hold its 16th Annual Kids' Bike Swap on Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 10am - 4pm at Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Ave S.

This event is an opportunity for families to trade in a bike their child has outgrown for a larger bike – just in time for the summer riding season! The Kids' Bike Swap helps to facilitate the flow of affordable bicycles within the community and keeps fully functional bikes out of our local landfills.

How the Kids' Bike Swap works:

Meet author Amy Waldman

Come meet Amy Waldman and join in a discussion between readers and writer at the Columbia Library on Saturday May 5 at 4pm.

The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library invites everyone to take part in Seattle Reads The Submission, a project designed to deepen engagement in literature through reading and discussion.

When a jury chooses a walled garden as the design for a ground zero memorial, they discover that its creator is a young Muslim American architect. They know their selection will unleash a firestorm of controversy and they are proven right. In the conflicted response of the jury and the public, The Submission asks hard questions about the American values of tolerance, diversity and community.
