Bookmobile On The Hoof

I always love a good bookmobile story, so I couldn’t resist the tale of Ridwan Sururi and the Kudapustaka, or “Horse Library”. With the donation of 135 books by a friend from Jakarta, the horse farmer decided to start his traveling children’s lending library in December, 2014. Three days each week he makes the rounds of local villages and schools near his home town of Serang in Central Java delivering free reading materials. The story of Sururi and his trusty steed Luna has gotten the attention of social media in Indonesia and the book donations are flooding in for the project.
