Our Glorious Leader has trumpetted the solution to a growing dearth of libraries in Canberra.
It seems the Civic Library is closed for the forseeable future after its roof turned out to not be up to scratch back in the supercell thunderstorm of a month ago. Griffith Library of course was worth more dead to developers than it was to the Government alive.
The solution it seems is to drive a bus full of books around and the literature seeking plebs can line up to avail themselves of it when it comes by.
“The mobile library van will be parked at Civic Square every Wednesday lunchtime, from noon until 2pm, for the next several weeks, while repairs to the library building are completed.
Mr Stanhope also announced that the Mobile Library would commence regular visits to Griffith on Thursday mornings, beginning this week. The mobile service would be located in the car park off Stuart Street, just near the Griffith Shops, from 9.30am until 11.00am.
There are some hops Civic could be back up and running in 10 weeks. Now many of you had your offices disrupted by water damage from the storm, how long did it take to get back to work?
Was the Civic Library built particularly badly? Or is the ACT Government being particularly bad at getting it back up and running?
