It can be difficult for people in rural areas to visit a library, which is why the resources development program and the Rural Library partnered to introduce a mobile book service, which offers a selection of 1,200 books to the people of rural Zimbabwe.
This mobile library is carried throughout parts of the country by donkeys, which have large book-filled carts attached to their backs. So far, the organization is equipped with 15 Donkey cart libraries, three of which, contain solar panels that can power a computer, while serving as a charging dock for visitor's phones.
The service makes frequent stops at community centers and schools, and has a number of carts dedicated to exclusively carrying children's books.
