The Camel Mobile Library Service

teaperson writes "From The Guardian:

"There was excitement when the library camels appeared on the horizon, refusing to be hurried from their patient progress. The animals set down their cargo, and the staff from the Garissa Provincial Library assembled the tent, laid down mats and unpacked the books."

Yes, in Kenya, an underserved district of nomads sends books around on camels. The Guardian is also supporting an appeal for Book Aid International, which funds this effort (among others)."
