Biblioburro. A 4,800-title mobile lending library in the remote northern part of Colombia, traveling from town to town on the backs of two donkeys.

Biblioburro. Say it aloud, it brings such joy. (And read the article — and look at the slideshow — since it is a ridiculously heartening and helpful reminder that books will save the world if we let them.) Biblioburro. Just rolls off the tongue, you couldn't keep it on your tongue if you wanted to, oops there it rolls away, goodbye, goodbye Biblioburro, goodbye.
