Here's something new ...

... apparently prison libraries in Australia do not meet the standards required by convicted terrorists. Or at least that's the case at Goulburn "super-max" jail.

And here's even more shocking news; not only does that particular library not have enough books on topics of interest for one particular patron, the opening hours are limited. Oh my!

Although this story is now a few days old, I was holding off from sharing it because I was waiting to hear if the government (Federal or state) was going to provide a massive injection of funds to bring the prison libraries up to whatever standard they operate under.

Given the shortfall in school library funding, it would have been an 'interesting' (in that Chinese curse sort of way) to watch the next step unfold ...
