bookmark unrolling

The World’s Biggest Bookmark has been a long term project of the ACT Library Service and volunteers.

Today the fruits of their labour was unrolled in Civic Square.

One hopes a good time was had by all.

UPDATE 06/12/12 09:14: The media release has now downgraded the achievement to Canberra’s biggest. Which is pretty small beer really.

I think it is one of the ’10,000 reasons to like Canberra’. I know you’ve always had a soft spot for it JB! Hahahaha!

The matching book has been postponed due to printing cuts in the public service:

And to think people here used to disparage it as “the world’s biggest useless thing.”

If it’s downgraded to only the Northside’s biggest, expect angry scenes involving needles and a fleet of very slow four cylinder cars ramming things.

They got in touch with Guinness world records who basically said if you want to classify it as a world record you have to pay for someone to come and check everything. They didn’t have the funding.
