Bogota’s miniature public libraries will make you want to move to Colombia:

Reading fans in Colombia, especially the capital city of Bogota, never need to worry about being without a book on a beautiful day. There are nearly 50 of these perfect little library kiosks scattered around the city’s parks, and 100 across the country. The mini-libraries are part of a joint program run by the city’s parks and a literacy organization . Volunteers staff the kiosks, helping patrons check out books and organizing activities and homework assistance for kids. There’s probably some theft, accidental or on purpose, because that always happens in libraries — but there aren’t any dudes masturbating at public computer terminals, so it evens out.
