Books Aren’t Worth The Paper They’re Written On.

09Sep15

Why do we still have libraries in the 21st century?

Birmingham City Council spent £183 million on a new library. It opened in 2013, now they can’t afford any books. They recently put out a leaflet that read, “Books required! Due to public saving cuts we are no longer purchasing any new books or newspapers. Therefore we are looking for any books that have been published in the last 12 months to be donated to the library. All gratefully received.”

The thing is, now that we’re all reading everything online and downloading ebooks, will anyone have any books that were published in the last twelve months to donate?

Craic on!
