Library in Scotland Offers Pole-Dancing Class To Boost Attendance
"The Mayfield Library of Dalkeith, Modlothian, decided to offer a free pole-dancing course to draw attendance, according to STV Edinburgh.
"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."
With the advent of e-books and the Internet, libraries in Scotland and the United States have been losing a lot of customers.
Why drive to the library, when as soon as you walk through the door, you will be assaulted by the vile stench of homeless mucking up the place.
It's much easier to download a book from Amazon or Google any information from the comfort of your home.
Libraries have to think outside the box, and find innovative ways to entice visitors. A pole dancing class, taught by a beautiful professional dancer, is a good way to attract people.
But why stop there, nothing sells like sex, the library in Scotland should let readers check out erotic literature, as well as adult movies.
Come to think of it, trying to save libraries is a losing cause. There is no way that a library can compete with the millions of adult videos available online.
