The Library Pledge

Got this from a contact who claims that her friend is a library fiend.
It is darn hilarious... Can we get all new and existing library members to read the pledge and sign it in blood??

FROM THE LIBRARY VIGILANTE CORPS

When you receive this chain e-book, kindly memorise
the following pledge and recite it every morning after
you brush your teeth, and once before going to bed.

THE LIBRARY PLEDGE

I, a good member of the library, promise to stick to
the terms and conditions of the library membership,
kindly granted to me by the highest, most knowing,
most literate of all organisations - the LIBRARY.

I promise to never extend my library borrowing period,
and to never accumulate fines. When visiting the
library, I promise to wear soft-soled shoes, to never
disturb other members of the borrowing public, and to
switch off my handphone and to knock the heads of
random members of the public if they do not do the
same.

I promise to lobby for the rights of books to be
wrapped in traditional plastic, measured and handcut
by librarians, and not cheap slip-on covers leftover
from the clearance sales of MPH in 1980.

I promise to not fold pages, or damage book corners,
or to pick my nose when reading books, or to read my
library books in the toilet, thereby encouraging the
population of silverfish.

I promise to undertake the national service required
of me to prevent the terror of silverfish and moths
and other insects detrimental to the health of the
precious library books.

Above all, I promise to never visit bookstores which
undermine the membership, the prestige and glamour of
the library. ( UNLIKE THE CLANDESTINE ACTIVITIES OF
CERTAIN BOOK SNOBS WHO PASS THEMSELVES OFF AS BOOK
COLLECTORS).

I promise to always wash my hands and sterilise my
hands before touching any library books or
audio-visual materials.

With my hand over my heart, I pledge that I will give
of my best to the library and be a library
regulations-abiding member of the borrowing public!

HAIL LIBRARY!
