The Trumpet reports that a book loving resident of the Gobi Desert, Dashdondog Jamba has been running a Mobile Children's Library for the last 20 years. After the fall of Communism in the 1990s most libraries were closed, so Mr. Jamba kept his love of books alive by roaming over 50,000 miles by camel, horse and cart, or now by van throughout the Gobi Desert bringing books to children and adults who otherwise had no access to books. Those of us who work at the Vancouver Community Library appreciate having a short commute to the library by car or bus. How would we fare bringing books to children in Mongolia by camel?
Volunteers crazy about books.
