Brazil: Bicycle Brings Books to the Homeless


If good ideas transcend boundaries, this one does it by bicycle. That is, by Bicicloteca [ ], a bicycle that carries a small library through the city of São Paulo, Brazil.

The project is a creative and dynamic way to encourage reading, especially among people who live on the streets, because libraries typically require identification and proof of residence to loan books; documents which homeless people don't have.
