From BBC News, Venezuela's four-legged mobile libraries:

A university in Venezuela is using a novel method to take books into remote communities and encourage people to read.

[..]these mules are rather special. They are known as bibliomulas (book mules) and they are helping to spread the benefits of reading to people who are isolated from much of the world around them.

As the project grows, it is using the latest technology. Somehow there is already a limited mobile phone signal here, so the organisers are taking advantage of that and equipping the mules with laptops and projectors.

The book mules are becoming cyber mules and cine mules.
