"One of our community's top priorities is to improve bicycle and pedestrian mobility, and the Mountain View Library is pleased to have received a grant to support this effort," said library director Roseanne Macek in an email.
"We hope our new Bike Fixit Station will provide a useful service for our community and help establish the library as a bike-friendly destination. We will also be offering a variety of bike-related programs throughout the summer to educate the public about bike safety."

According to the company's website, the station costs $940.
