A first heads-up: If you live within driving distance of Williamsburg, consider joining us at the Williamsburg Regional Library on Scotland Street between 10 AM and 2 PM for the Great Checkout Protest. All of us with valid library cards will be filling them with as many books as we can, on the last day our cards will be valid. Our hope is that we’ll demonstrate to the library just what a big part of the system we are.

If you’d like a T-shirt to wear to the protest, post a message!
Flyers will shortly be available, reading:
THE GREAT CHECKOUT PROTEST
JANUARY 31, 2011
10 AM TO 2 PM
WILLIAMSBURG REGIONAL LIBRARY
Have a valid WRL library card?
Come help us protest the new WRL policy!
On February 1, the WRL Board of Trustees will deprive six thousand users of the WRL system of their cards. The Board has refused to consider allowing us to pay fees for our cards–and they won’t explain their reasoning.
Between 10 AM and 2 PM on January 31, come and fill your library card with as many books as you can.
If youâ€™re in danger of losing your card, show the library system what a big part of the library we are. And if youâ€™re in Williamsburg, James City, or York County, please come show your support.
