This is a small corner of our library, admirably manned by research librarian Jonathan “Jon the Plumber Librarian” Milder:
The following, however, is a library in La Gloria, Colombia, where librarian Luis Soriano and his two donkeys Alfa and Beto bring via “biblioburro” a rotating selection of 4800 books to about 300 people in a remote corner of the country.

We think our library could only benefit from a couple helper burros. We just don’t know where we’d keep them at night. What do you think?
