Mini-Libraries In Colombian Parks Act As Tutoring Hot Spots
There are over 100 of these literary kiosks across the country, which give people access to books, organize activities and homework assistance for children.
Over 100 ‘mini-libraries’ fill the parks in Colombia, as part of a nationwide program to promote literacy and give more people access to books. The Paradero Para Libros Para Parques (PPP) program was created around 12 years ago by nonprofit group Fundalectura in partnership with the parks system.
According to Bilingual Librarian, volunteers staff the library kiosks and they help patrons check out books, answer questions, organize activities, and provide homework assistance for children. The mini-libraries hold around 350 books each and are staffed for about 12 hours a week, usually over the weekend.
To move beyond novelty activations and one-time gimmicks, PSFK equips marketers with the insights, templates and analytics to develop high-reach campaigns that meet consumers in the moment, collect and build upon experiential data, and build scale through content creation.
At PSFK 2017, Peloton Co-Founder and COO Tom Cortese discussed how the company aims to utilize the power of Web 2.0 to marry the comfort of home fitness to the high-energy engagement of celebrity-run classes.
