Biblioburro: The Donkey Library

My husband Eddie and I met while we were both working on the Bookmobile at our public library. We used to take the Bookmobile into all kinds of diverse areas of our city. It was very important to us to make sure that the children who were truly interested in these areas, were able to check books out. This video was of interest to us because of the way that they deliver the books to the children there. We had a nice, air conditioned bookmobile trailer that was about 36 feet in length. Very portable, although it took some preparation to get it moved and set up. I can't even imagine how hard it would be to transport books by donkey. This is an amazing thing, but I have to admit that I'm feeling a little sorry for the donkey.

That was really neat, Sharon! I think it's wonderful for anyone to encourage a child to read... looks like they were sure enjoying it!
