Do Not Touch The Books

In one of the hallowed university rooms where I am educated, there is a bizarre sign on the wall.

The room is a large, impressive-looking space, with big arched windows looking over Russell Square and contemporary white domed lampshades suspended from the ceiling. And the walls are lined with hundreds of very interesting looking books, going all the way up to the ceiling.

So it's a bit of a shame that attached to these shelves is a tatty bit of A4 with a hand-written sign that reads, "Do not touch the books".

Surely that restricts the pursuit of education? Book worms.
