Books over Bullets: Hi-Tec Mobile Libraries Will Deploy to FARC Demobilization Camps

Starting March 15, 20 hi-tec mobile libraries will be deployed to the FARC demobilization zones where fighters are expected to lay down their weapons and begin their transition into legality. Each library includes digital tablets, video cameras, board games, a movie projection system with 30 films and over 500 books, both digital and paper copies.
