DALKEITH, Scotland, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A Scottish library used pole dancing classes as part of a daylong event designed to drum up interest in the facility.

The Mayfield Library in Dalkeith hosted a pole dancing class Saturday with teacher Nikki Clark as part of Love Your Library Day, which also featured table tennis with books instead of paddles, head massages and Scottish country dancing, STV reported Wednesday.

"Love Your Library Day is a marvelous opportunity for us all to celebrate the hugely important role libraries play in the heart of our local community," said Bob Constable of Midlothian Council. "The pole fitness session is a fun and interesting way of encouraging more people into our libraries, trying out all the services on offer and ultimately borrowing more books."
