PSIP Description: 
A look at a Colombian teacher who used two hard-working donkeys to bring books to poor children.
Long Description: 
This is the story of a librarian -- and a library -- like no other. A decade ago, Colombian teacher Luis Soriano was inspired to spend his weekends bringing a modest collection of precious books, via two hard-working donkeys, to the children of a poor and violence-ridden province. As Soriano braves armed bands, drug traffickers, snakes and heat, his library on hooves carries an inspirational message about education and a better future for Colombia.
