El Biblioburro Brings Books to Colombian Villages

The donkeys are called Alfa and Beto. The man is Luis Soriano. Together they bring books to communities throughout Colombia’s Caribbean Sea hinterlands.

Since they began more than a dozen years ago, children’s picture books adventure stories have been among their patrons’ favorite deliveries. So it’s appropriately cool that Mr. Soriano and his burros feature twice in books of their own.
