People power empties threatened library!!!

The residents of a small town in Britain have borrowed every single book from their local library in an attempt to stop it from being closed.

Until this week, the town of Stony Stratford, a constituent town of Milton Keynes in north Buckinghamshire, was notable only because its two pubs, The Cock and The Bull, were the likely origin of the phrase "a cock and bull story".

But when the Milton Keynes Council decided to close Stony Stratford's library as part of budget cuts, 6,000 of the town's residents decided they had another story to tell. More...

Don't miss:
  1. The destruction of the Jaffna Tamil Library in Sri Lanka, a cultural genocide...
  2. She stole 200 library books!!!
  3. School in Tanzania needs books. Can you help?
  4. Aussie pensioner willing to pay $5000 fine for book he borrowed in 1957!!!
  5. Overdue library books returned 50 years later; borrower pays $1000 fine!!!
