A New Zealand library is accidentally opened, but no one steals a book

The library entrance gates were thrown open on Waitangi Day last month due to faulty programming. However, due to this national holiday, no one is working in the largest libraries of the country.

At least 380 visitors

Documents released by the municipality show that 380 people visited the library that morning. They walked through the library, read books and borrowed items from automated machines. It is reported that 147 books were loaned through the machines. writes that Guardian.

A customer left a note indignant that no one was working at the library. He wanted to borrow CDs, but couldn’t find an employee anywhere. That’s why he took those CDs.

Comments on Facebook

It was only after several hours that the municipal administration in charge of the library came to know that hundreds of people had entered and the doors were left open. The awareness came only when city residents posted comments on the municipality’s Facebook page about the incident.

The municipality sent a guard to the building, who called everyone to leave. According to library staff, not a single book was stolen. It is unclear whether the CDs were returned. “We are grateful for the honesty of people visiting the library at this time,” said a spokesperson for the municipality.

A rare mistake

An investigation into the reason the doors were left open is ongoing. It is “extremely rare” for the system to fail in this way, according to the spokesperson. The assembly will ensure that this does not happen again.
