The Elephants Are Coming

ElefantAsia_III1

Room to Read Laos, along with NGOs ElefantAsia and Action with Lao Children, created the Elephant Mobile Library. The  world’s first—and only—elephant powered library delivers Lao-language children’s books to rural primary schools in the northern Laotian province of Xaybouly. As you might expect, the elephants are a huge hit with the students who shout “the elephants are, the elephants are coming” on library day. Sure tops the bookmobile.
