Library Hopes To Draw Attendance By Offering Pole Dancing Course

The library is the last place most of us associate with pole dancing, but a library in Scotland is offering a free pole dancing course to help draw in attendance. “The pole fitness session is a fun and interesting way of encouraging more people into our libraries, trying out all the services on offer and ultimately borrowing more books,” Midlothian Council member Bob Constable told STV.

The class, led by professional dancer Nikki Clark, was offered as part of a celebration called “Love Your Library Day,” the station learned. Constable noted, “Love Your Library Day’ is a marvelous opportunity for us all to celebrate the hugely important role libraries play in the heart of our local community.”

Library officials reportedly implemented other unique classes into Love Your Library Day as well, including Scottish country dancing, head massages, and “booky table tennis,” which allegedly involved games of table tennis that used books in place of paddles.

Um, Shhhhhh! It’s a library! And, what kind of people might they be attracting? Don’t think I’d want to find out.
