The Biblioburro and the Camel Bookmobile

Every once in a while, something reminds me how much I take for granted my easy access to books.  The photo, above, of a travelling library that brings books to villages that are not accessible by car in Colombia, makes me feel very lucky. In Kenya, there is a camel bookmobile (The Camel Bookmobile, a novel based on this true story, is an excellent book by Masha Hamilton).  I can’t even imagine being bereft of books.  And bravo to the people who came up with plans for how to ensure even people living in some very remote places will have access to the world of reading.
