Turkey mayor delivers school books by donkey to encourage reading



Osman Turkyilmaz, mayor of Kirikkale province’s Yahsihan district in central Turkey has found an interesting way to raise public awareness of reading. He walked with a donkey and distributed books from a saddlebag on the back of the donkey.
The idea came from an old story that he liked and decided to use as a good way to attract the students’ attention to reading.
‘We regularly come together to read books every month. Last month, it was a neighborhood meeting, and today we are here in Bedesten forest of Yahsihan district with kids and university students all together,’ Turkyilmaz said.—APP
