ICC— 4/20/2021 — The ICC Library recently added something unique for students. Bike rental. The library acquired 4 bikes and 2 eBikes through a grant from the Southeast Kansas Library System and a partnership with ICC Student Government Association and Student Life. Students may check out the bikes for 3 days at no charge through the library.
ICC students have already used the bikes to travel the campus and beyond. One of the most popular activities on the bikes is to travel into Independence to shop, eat, or explore downtown. The bikes have become so popular that there is a waiting list of students waiting for them. The students are not charged for the use of the bikes but must have a library account and the account must be in good standing.
The college is hoping to grow the program in the future to continue providing essential services to the students.
