Public library targets busy commuters

Following the example of Colombia's Bogota and Medellin, Spain's Madrid offers its subway commuters access to library books. The project is called Bibliometro.

Bibliometro is one of the most innovative and successful programs of the Dirección de Bibliotecas Archivos y Museos. It has been growing steadily since inception when it started with three locations, 500 books and 12 thousand loans a year. Today it has 15 locations and offers 45 thousand volumes of 15 thousand titles.
