Interesting Fact # 1156 - Reading

A new library scheme in England, Wales and Northern Ireland means that wherever you are you can borrow a book, simply by using your local library card.

(What a fantastic idea! It means that even if you're on holiday you can still use the local library. Of course you have to take any books you've borrowed back to the library you borrowed them from, but even so... I'm tempted to go back to England.)
