“On a cold, rainy morning, a van pulls up outside a rural elementary school on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital. The fluorescent green vehicle provides a flash of color on this otherwise gray day. There’s a picture of children reading books under a large apple tree, and the words “Reading is fun” are painted in English and Urdu, the national language in Pakistan. This is the weekly visit of the Bright Star Mobile Library. Volunteer Ameena Khan starts pulling books from shelves on either side of the van”.
