Then again, not every library is high-tech. Teacher Luis Soriano of Colombia delivers books by donkey to rural children. Nominated for a CNN Hero award, Soriano travels between 15 villages in remote Magdalena province to children who are 40 minutes away from the nearest school. He and his wife also built a library and operate a restaurant.
Travel by donkey in Colombia is not without its perils, such as accidents and attack by bandits. You can read about this literacy hero and view a video on the CNN website at this link: http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/02/25/cnnheroes.soriano/index.html
or another video available on YouTube:
