Shhh-ins and a book snatcher to save libraries in the UK

February 7, 2011 at 3:45 am Leave a comment

February 5, 2011 was Save Our Libraries Day in the United Kingdom. In Milborne Port in Somerset a hooded “book snatcher” stole books from children, and protesters in Sheffield held a shhh-in. There was a flashmob read-aloud in Cambridge, and we hear one supporter of libraries spent the day “joyreading.” This image is a “logo” for the Woburn Sands library — I love how it’s a sort of anti-logo, NOT the usual simple, simplified, simplistic, bombastic, corporate logo. Thanks, Dina Wood!

A hawk in the Library of Congress! An actual live hawk! Nice try, CC students.
