‘Wot no books?’

Congratulations and good wishes to the folks trying to save Stony Stratford Library in Milton Keynes. This Saturday they descended upon the library and withdrew every single book in protest at closure plans.

You can see what they got up to here. It’s a simple and effective protest that has gained them huge amounts of publicity – I picked up the link from Twitter, where’s it’s being circulated by Margaret Atwood. (Yes, THE Margaret Atwood.)
