Library of Abandoned Books

by duncanr

a bunch of binmen in Turkey began rescuing books thrown out amongst the garbage to read themselves

before long, they had a little collection that they shared amongst themselves and their families

as the saying goes – ‘from little acorns mighty oaks grow‘ . . .

they now have amassed a collection of 6,000+ ‘reclaimed’ books and have opened a library to make these available for the general public to borrow, and have lent books to ‘local schools, educational programs, and even a few prisons’

Super Heroes

by duncanr

Beth, over at ‘I didn’t have my glasses on’, posted of her disappointment on meeting Spiderman when she was 7 yr old. It reminded me of the time we took our grandkids to meet some super heroes . . .

batmanaccent2300I saw Spiderman in town on Saturday. Along with Batman and Robin, and Superman. The Superheroes were on the 6th Floor of the Library. I know what you’re thinking – another ‘Fathers for Justice’ stunt.

No. These particular Superheroes were part of an ‘Event’ organised by the City Council to encourage children to come along and learn more about the facilities on offer at the library. It was supposed to be a ‘fun day’. Mrs D had spotted the ad in the local paper and decided it was just the thing to amuse the grandkids.

Some piss artist has been peeing on the books.

For the past 3 weeks, staff have been finding incidences of books soaked in urine. On each occasion, 30-90 books have been affected – all of which have had to be destroyed

Can’t remember the last time I used a library – it was certainly years ago

Perhaps I need to change that.

Seems libraries nowadays are a lot more interesting than when I used to frequent them. No longer are they simply places where you can take out books for a couple of weeks. In some libraries you can take out people too.

See –

Think I’ll check out my local library tomorrow – see if they’re operating a similar scheme. Might be able to take out a long-legged brunette for the weekend !
