Micro-Grants in Action: Salem-South Lyon District Library

December 1, 2021

The Salem-South Lyon District Library, in partnership with the South Lyon Cycle shop, received a Micro-Grant to install a bike repair station at the library. The Huron Valley Rail Trail is adjacent to the library and the installation of the bike repair station will help to ensure a safe place for riders to repair their bike if they should need it.

“We knew there was a young family who came to the library often and they were usually coming by bike unless it was snowing. Shortly after the bike rack was installed, one of their children got a flat tire on the way to return a book. The parents were able to teach their child how to change a flat tire using the station. It was a great learning moment for the kid and we know the bike repair station is getting a lot of use!” – Kelly Soerens, Salem-South Lyon District Library
