You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up - Pole Dancing in the Library

Pole Dancing: It's Not Just for Strip Clubs Anymore

In an earlier post I confessed my love for weird news stories, remember? Here's one that tickled my fancy. Seems some libraries are willing to think outside the box in order to attract new patrons.

In January of this year a library in Scotland hosted pole dancing classes as part of their Love Your Library Day.

Not this kind of pole dancing.

All my local library offers is free internet. Just imagine old Mrs. McTavish's surprise when she popped in to return her Maeve Binchy paperback.

Honestly, you couldn't make this stuff up. As always, I've attached a link to the original story.

I read it in a newspaper so it must be true.


  1. Being a Brit, I know anything is possible with the Scots. This really made me laugh. Good post

    1. My mom's Scottish so I know what you mean. She's got a pretty unique outlook on life. It made for some interesting times when I was growing up.
