“Hall of Horrors” Exhibition

The Library of the National Theatre School of Canada invites you to an exhibition unlike any other taken from the “Hall of Horrors” of its collections.

From September 4th to September 21st , 2012

Why this exhibition?
The following exhibition was created to show our internal and external users the proper way to treat our library’s books and documents. Every year, the library invests large sums of money and a non-negligible amount of manpower to develop and maintain its collections. In order to respond to user demand, the library’s employees strive to offer excellent service and endeavor to provide a maximum number of books in good physical condition. Sadly, it has come to our attention that our good intentions are sorely tested by the lack of respect, negligence, and, in some cases, premeditated vandalism inflicted on our books by a growing number of users. Books are getting more and more costly, and printing runs are getting smaller and smaller; consequently, books are more quickly worn down. Since our budgets have been frozen for the past five years, we are forced to permanently remove books from our collections, due to aggressive treatment at the hands of a user.
