CLEVELAND (CBS Cleveland) – If you’re looking to get fit locally while feeling sexy, you can solicit Cleveland Exotic Dance. In Scotland, you can go to the library.

The Mayfield Library of Dalkeith, Modlothian, decided to offer a free pole-dancing course to draw attendance, according to STV Edinburgh.

“The pole fitness session is a fun and interesting way of encouraging more people into our libraries, trying out all the services on offer and ultimately borrowing more books,” Midlothian Council member Bob Constable told STV.

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

Constable noted, “”Love Your Library Day’ is a marvelous opportunity for us all to celebrate the hugely important role libraries play in the heart of our local community.”

Library officials reportedly implemented other unique classes into Love Your Library Day as well, including Scottish country dancing, head massages, and “booky table tennis,” which allegedly involved games of table tennis that used books in place of paddles.
