Clearing the shelves!

January 24, 2011

Back on the 16th we mentioned a Twitter campaign to save (public) libraries. 

Now, over on the Isle of Wight, Newport library users have taken very direct action by clearing the shelves of books – borrowing right up to their limit of 30 and starting with the crime section (as it’s a crime to close libraries!).

Our thanks to J for spotting this and if you find a Library protest for TOTD – do let us know!
