That's what I call a Big Society Bank...

Cambridge protesters took over a city bank and turned it into a library.

As part of the nationwide UK Uncut campaign against the Government’s cuts, a group of protesters occupied both the Royal Bank of Scotland and Natwest banks in the city centre on Saturday - turning Natwest into a makeshift library.

University and school students, alongside children and parents, sat on the floor of the bank and read stories to each other.

The read-in was a comment on the threat to the county’s libraries - 13 of which are under review.
