• During the month of February, Topeka Metro will offer paperback copies, courtesy of the library, of “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald on Topeka Metro fixed route buses. Patrons are invited to take a book, read it, share it with

someone else and then return it to the bus so that it may be enjoyed by others.

• Beginning Monday, February 4th and running through Saturday, February 9th, Topeka Metro will offer FREE rides on the fixed route buses to passengers that present their TSCPL library card when boarding the bus.

“We see this as a  great opportunity for folks that enjoy and use our local library to try the bus at no cost,” said Susan Duffy, General Manager of Topeka Metro. “It’s so easy…just show your library card*.”
