Police were called to MPP Sam Oosterhoff's riding office Tuesday after a group of older adults clutching books showed up to stage a "read in" over provincial library cuts.

The group of about 15 retirees and seniors, some of whom are members of a classic book club in Wainfleet, had planned to read their books in the Niagara West Tory MPP's Beamsville office in silent protest.

"I don't think we looked threatening," said Janet Hodgkins, a book club member and a retired librarian who worked at Welland Public Library for 28 years.
