    I love reading books so I think that the program is very useful since if it's a beautiful sunny day or a clear day and you go to the park you can sit there and read a book. It's a good use of your time. First time reading about tiny public libraries so I am fascinated by them they look really cool.

    I love this! It's a unique way to get people to like reading, and see it in a new light.

    Bogotá is often very progressive in policies such as these, and there's no doubt that the amount of reading done by childrean (and adults) in Colombia needs improving, so here's hoping this helps.

    This is a very interesting program. It must be considered that e-readers and tablets are not as popular in Colombia (or any other middle income country) as they are in the US. This program boosts literacy and beautifies public space. Also, from the environmental stand point, books that already in print are available human capital that MUST not be wasted. This is an awesome way to put them to use. Kudos!
