Camel drivers, outfitted with custom-made book pouches will travel to the least populated region in southwestern Pakistan. Basarat Kazim is named a 2020 Freedom Through Literacy Board Option prize winner for her mobile Camel Library for Kech Balochistan.
We cannot get enough of the new Camel Library. Here we have the camel on the move, on the way to their library destination.
Library destination reached! It is book selection and checkout time. This brings a new meaning to surreal, at least in terms of libraries.
Library destination reached! Books selected & checked out. Now it is story time – no description needed – the video tells it all! What a way to explain the impact that Basarat Kazim partnership with Judith Reading Room has!
Please also read the recent story in the Arab News-Pakistan Mobile camel library carries books to children in remote Pakistani villages
In addition, Basarat just received books donated via Barnes & Noble (Wyomissing, PA) @BNReadingPA holiday drive featuring Judith’s Reading Room as their 2020 Holiday Charity.
My share of excitement just arrived!! Simply love the early readers Barnes & Noble donated to honour the work of Judith’s Reading Room. The children will be absolutely fascinated.
Thank you so much.
