One way to protest library closures

By johnboy - 20 November 2006 20

Something I thought needed wider prominence.

In the comments GuruNik has made a suggestion for those library users wishing to express their disastisfaction with the ACT Government’s decision to close the Griffith Library.

“just drop your returns back to the legislative assembly building…leave them on the front counter with a nice note for john hargraves.”

If any of you decide to give it a try we’d love to hear how you go.

What’s Your opinion?

Who the hell cares about closing a library? Plus, we are closing the schools anyway – it is not like the kids will be able to read.

There are, however, some titles that Hargreaves would be pleased to read: from the erudite “1001 Ways To…” series.
“1001 Ways to Outfox RBTs”
“1001 Ways to Persuade the UberFuhrer of your Inestimable Worth in the Politburo”
“1001 Ways to Beat the Pokies”.
And no doubt there are others.
-If only Griffith Library had stocked this esteemed series, the decision to close it might never have been taken.

Why don’t we coordinate a RiotACT book drive for Griffith Library.

And then dump them at the Assembly building.

If they don’t want them we can then take them to St Vinnies or somewhere.

Thumper 8:12 am 21 Nov 06

True JB,

but how about going to the local St Vinnies, buying some books for cheap, making some stickers that say Griffith Library, and then dump them.

Just to make a point.

In any case, he’s unlikely to read them.

not much point getting into civil disobedience if you’re not willing to bear some costs.

Thumper 7:52 am 21 Nov 06

I love the idea….

But the fine will be forthcoming….

They may need to install a booze bus on London Circuit if he does it regularly….

John (Don’t vote for me) Hargraves can take ’em across the plaza to the Link Library.

futto 9:56 pm 20 Nov 06

I don’t blame the goverment for the Libary Closures. It is clearly AL GORE’s fault.

He invented the internet, remember?

Jey 8:42 pm 20 Nov 06

I like it
I imagine you’d get a call informing you your books are at the assembly and they want you to collect them as they’d hate you to get a fine
