Biblioburro: The Donkey Library is the story of a unique librarian and his library. Ten years ago, Colombian grade-school teacher Luis Soriano was inspired to spend his weekends bringing a modest collection of precious books, via two hard-working donkeys, to the children of Magdalena Province's poor and violence-ridden interior. As Soriano braves armed bands, drug traffickers, snakes and heat, his library on hooves carries an inspirational message about education and a better future for Colombia.

Share Biblioburro: The Donkey Library, streaming online until Sept. 18, 2011, with your students and colleagues with a printable PDF bookmark featuring Luis Soriano and his biblioburro.

I thought this would be a magnificent story to tell, for what it says about human goodness and inventiveness and for what it reveals about the dignity of the Colombian people, especially the poorest among them.”
