Our Spanish Ambassador Maria Garcia-Puente shared with us the story of Biblos, a super hero that promotes reading to young children at the Public Library of Huelva. If a child borrows 20 books in one year, they get a free copy of the Biblos comic, and if they borrow 50 books they can get a limited-edition hardcover version! At least one of the issues of the comic is called The Great OPAC, which tickles our sense of humour.
