A student at a strict private school has solved the problem of books being banned from the school library: operate an illicit lending library from your locker. I doubt the private library is unknown to officials, because the more students know of its availability, the more likely faculty will know, so my guess is it is being tolerated provided no fallout occurs. If the secret is well-kept, hopefully this altruistic student will go on to a career in library curatorship, and help make sure that libraries remain sources of information, not knowledge control. Despite the positive spin in the question, some people, however, aren't so sure the story is real. Via, via.
