Jocular Look @ Today’s News: Pole Dancing Lessons at the Library


Librarians brainstorming for a creative way to get more people into the stacks need only look across the pond for inspiration. At the Mayfield Library in Dalkeith, Scotland, patrons can now come in for a free pole-dancing class — and leave with an armful of books. “The pole fitness session is a fun and interesting way of encouraging more people into our libraries, trying out all the services on offer and ultimately borrowing more books,” one local authority said. Another profile-raising gambit from the library includes “booky table tennis,” in which books are used instead of paddles.

Really? Seriously …?

 Reading is FUNdamental and it is always important.  It so important that pole dancing can be used to help people realize how important  reading is for educating one’s self and in turn enriching society.

 But is this the right thing to be doing to promote reading. How rigid are the standards pole dancers are held too? My local library had a policy of closing its doors to the homeless because of some found jacking off  in the bathroom. I fear that the bathroom may become a place of self-pollution more so than it already is ?

Why is that dangerous, well the bathroom was traditionally the place where most reading took place.  If it becomes more a place of self flagellation or self-DJ’ing then we will get the piles of books from the library and never read, we will be just going to library for pole -dancing, getting tons of books and leave them on the table until it’s time to return them.

Let me ask you a question, after  either pounding one out or getting pounded out how often do you go for a book to read ?
