RPL’s BookBike program was funded, in part, with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, through a Community Collaboration grant from Southeast Libraries Cooperating (SELCO). RPL’s ArtCart was funded through a grant from the Bush Foundation.

RPL’s BookBike was the 2015 City Category winner for the Local Government Innovation Awards presented by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. This video highlights the program:
