(Scroll down for video) A library came up with a sexy idea to boost traffic into their center, according to press reports in the United States.
If you are looking to get fit while feeling sexy, locally, you can order exotic dancing classes Mayfield Dalkeith Library, located in Scotland.

Mayfield Dalkeith Library, in Modlothian, decided to offer a free pole-dancing course to draw attendance.
“The pole dancing fitness session is a fun and interesting way to encourage more people into our libraries, testing out all of our services offered and eventually borrow more books,” board member Bob Constable told a local television news station.

The class, led by professional dancer Nikki Clark, is offered as part of a celebration called “Love Your Library Day,” the television news station reported.

Constable said: “’Love your Library Day’ is a wonderful opportunity for us all to celebrate the enormously important role that libraries play in the heart of our local community.”

Library officials also implemented other classes only for “Love your Library Day”, like Scottish country dancing, head massages, and booky ping-pong which involves a game of table tennis using books instead of rackets.
