Kansas City-Area Library Uses Butchering Demonstration to Lure Patrons
Wall Street Journal broke the story: "Mr. Pope, owner of Local Pig, a butcher shop in nearby Kansas City, Mo., was at the library to give a hog-butchering demonstration to about 100 people in an event advertised as "Books and Butchers."
"If you can butcher a hog in a library, then all sorts of other things become possible," says Sean Casserley, a new county librarian for Overland Park, who dreamed up the idea."
It's a bold new trend in attracting somebody besides hobos taking sponge baths in the public restrooms to local libraries.
