91-year-old woman in Scotland to borrow her 25,000th. book from library!!!

An avid reader in south west Scotland is on the brink of borrowing her 25,000th book from her local libraries.

Louise Brown, 91, from Stranraer, took her first book on loan from Castle Douglas library in 1946. 

Since then she has borrowed at least six books every week throughout each year and has recently increased that to about 12 volumes every seven days. 

Library staff said they were amazed by the achievement, particularly since Mrs Brown has never had an overdue fine. More...

Don't miss:

  1. The destruction of the Jaffna Tamil Library in Sri Lanka...
  2. Ethiopia: children learning to read ... from the Donkey Mobile Library!!!
  3. Gebregeorgis Yohannes, the Ethiopian who is bringing books to Ethiopian kids!
  4. Woman in Taiwan stole books and sold them on-line!!!
