Colombians are smart. (And they’re getting smarter.)
Thanks to a program put forth by Colombia’s city parks organization and a literacy program entitled [Fundalectura], there are 47 Paradero Para Libros Para Parques (PPP) in various neighborhoods in Bogota and 100, in total, across the country. Volunteers work these mini-libraries, organizing events and activities, answering questions, helping with homework and, of course, allowing patrons to check out books. They’re only open for ~12 hours a week and operate mostly on the weekends, but hey, it’s betur thayun beein dum.
