Spreading a Love of Reading in Italy

On Jan. 28, the BBC reported on the Bibliomotocarro, a traveling library in a three-wheeled van that was started by retired teacher Antonio La Cava. He offers books to underserved children in the remote villages of the Basilicata region of Italy. One village, San Paolo Albanese, has only two school-age children in it.

The venture has two main benefits for the children in the region, says La Cava: Books keep children from being lonely, and he didn’t want to see his home become “a country of non-readers.” He tells the BBC that operating the Bibliomotocarro “has a value, not only social, not only cultural, but has a great ethical meaning.”

For more information, read the article (and watch the video).
