Bookmobile Delivery by Camel

When I worked at the Eau Claire Public Library, I was the backup driver for their Bookmobile service to area nursing homes and senior centers. We had a van. But in Kenya, "ships of the desert are the best way to travel."

From the BBC News comes a photo journal of the Camel Mobile Library.



"A static library would be of no use to nomads and so instead we follow them, wherever they go. . . . We travel within a radius of 11km on a given day. As the camels arrive, the children are actually waiting for us. The day we come is fixed and they are expecting us."

Thanks to my colleague, Lisa Pfaff for the tip.
