What is Bicicloteca?

Life is full of interesting coincidences, isn't it? Example: I discovered Bicicloteca during the Hoover Public Library's week-long salute to Brazil.

Bicicloteca is Brazil's adaptation of a mobile library. It's a large tricycle that has been outfitted with a compartment capable of carrying 150kg of books. It doesn't require a driving license or expensive fuel, and it can easily manuever through the busy streets. I don't think I'll ever look at a tricycle the same way again.
