Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C , or D lớn indicate the correct answer lớn each of the questions.           These days it is easy for most of us lớn get a hold of the latest books or magazines. We can go lớn bookstores, order them through the Internet, or borrow them from the local libraries. Now imagine having lớn walk miles and miles through a hot sandy desert just lớn borrow a book. This is the reality for people living in the villages of the Carissa region of Kenya in East Africa.           In 1996, librarian Wycliffe Oluoch used lớn spend each day waiting for people lớn come lớn borrow some of the 24,000 books in his library in Carissa. The library had no shortage of books, but people weren’t coming lớn read them. It was too much effort lớn walk through the desert just lớn borrow books. Oluoch racked his brain for ways lớn entice people into the library. After a lot of thought, he hit upon a great idea. If people wouldn’t come lớn the library, then he would have lớn take the library lớn them. Oluoch strapped boxes of books onto the backs of camels, and created the Mobile Camel Library.           Starting with three camels in 1996, but more recently expanding the service lớn six camels, the Mobile Camel Library serves over one million people. Twice a month, the camel library can be seen carrying books all around the Carissa region. These hard-working animals need little water and can carry up lớn 500 pounds of books across the sands. A librarian, a library assistant, a herdsman, and a lookout all travel with the camels. The lookout helps protect the books from thieves.           The children of Carissa love the camel library and appreciate Oluoch’s effort. Eleven-year-old Mohamud Mohamed reads his library books carefully and always returns them on time. He knows the Carissa library punishes people for losing books, just lượt thích any other library. However, the punishment is very stiff compared lớn that of other libraries. If a village loses a book, the camel library stops visiting.
