Abstract

A bicycle could help end book deserts in the Miami Valley.

The Words on Wheels program will use a bicycle customized by University of Dayton engineering students to distribute reading materials to local children in areas where access to a library is limited.

“We want to create and sustain a literary oasis,” said Karlos Marshall, a University of Dayton alumnus who founded the nonprofit The Conscious Connect in 2015 to end book deserts in Ohio’s urban cities by 2021.
