Bike Month Photo Hunt. Identify and photograph Kitchener Landmarks for your chance to win a prize. kpl.org/bike-month

June is bike month and we’re excited to announce the Bike Month Photo Hunt! Get out your bike, hit the city and take some photos. Can you identify and photograph 10 Kitchener locations? We’ve got gift cards to some rad local businesses for winning participants. This activity runs all month so there is plenty of time to explore. If you’re not sure where to start, ask Curb & Carry staff at any library branch for a free Kitchener Bike Map or Young Cyclist’s Guide. Visit our website for more information: kpl.org/bike-month
