Activity Overview


Compare and contrast different countries and their methods of accessing books. In this example, Finland, Indonesia, and Kenya are compared.

In Finland, children check out books by boat. "Since 1976, the Pargas Library has been bringing books to the people of these islands by book boat: Bokbat in Swedish or Kirjastovene in Finnish." In Indonesia, a bicycle delivers the books. "Children and their parents can borrow books from the bicycle library and exchange them the next time the library visits." In Kenya, camels deliver the books. "One camel may carry as many as five hundred books, weighing about four hundred pounds."
