You never know what's on at the library!

Library budgets in the UK are also on the chopping block. For "Love Your Library Day” earlier this month, a wee library in Scotland found some creative ways to encourage attendance for the event. Among the somewhat controversial offerings were free pole dancing classes and ‘booky table tennis’, which used (or abused) books as paddles. No reports regarding an increase in circulation (books, that is), but the Mayfield librarians were thrilled by the community turnout.

From the video, it looks as if folk had a great time at the library!
