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.

What’s Your opinion?

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.

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.

There are Martians looking through telescopes at what they think are canals as we speak…

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

Any sign of the book?

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

Another victim of the Govt’s push to a mythical surplus this FY… Hahaha! 🙂

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!
