The one-man library bringing books to a South African township

After his local library burnt down, Neo Mathetsa decided to do something about it.

Mathetsa, of Mohlakeng, Randfontein, in South Africa, set up a library of his own - in his bedroom, collecting books from wherever he could find them.

"Each and every house must have a book that is not doing anything," he says.

He told the BBC what inspired him to set it up and the challenges he faces.
