Humm, this library poster is so wrong that it’s funny! Certainly there are better ways to encourage kids into reading. A guy wearing a bright red shirt and a tie, leaning on a palm tree and holding a book in one hand is not one. You don’t want to be that guy. The fashion police could be around. He doesn’t even look comfortable. Ok, I could agree that reading could keep you out of trouble, unless you are reading just to learn something that might put you in prison. On another note, you could also say that when you’re in jail, you’ll have more time to read. But my question is: was the location of the library so bad that this poster seemed a good idea?
