I love books, reading is a passion. Imagine my surprise when 10 years ago I saw the first mobile library here in England. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it parked on the road.
The idea of the mobile library is to bring the books near the people that cannot go to the libraries, very old people, people with disabilities, or just people that work unusual hours and don't have the chance to visit the library. It really works. Inside the mobile library there are hundreds of titles available, but if somebody would like a copy of a book that is not there, it's possible to order by phone or online. Great, isn't it?
In a country where the majority reads a lot, this is really a must. I wonder if we already have that in Brazil? Is there still a charge to join the libraries in Brazil? We don't have it here, and there are enough books to everybody, so instead of being allowed to take only two books at a time, like in Brazil, here we can take much more. Kids have their own membership too, so a family of three for example, could end up bringing home 20 books or more in just on week. Amazing !
