The '''Kelly Library Book Appropriation''' was a prank that took place Friday, September 10th, 2010. After St. Michael's College students stole multiple boxes of hardhats from Outer Stores, engineering students retaliated by amassing at the John M. Kelly Library and organizing the sign-out of more than 1500 books from the 'Ethics' section.

Upon arriving at Kelly Library, students began loading Ethics books into empty F!rosh
Upon arriving at Kelly Library, students began loading Ethics books into empty F!rosh bags and signing them out at the front desk. Undergraduate students could sign out 50 books for a maximum renewal period of 2 months, while graduate students that came to show support were able to sign out up to 100 books for a period of up to 6 months. For some time, books were literally being taken out of the library by the cartload. Eventually, the crowd of students grew so large that library staff realized what was going on and proceeded to close the 'Ethics' section for "inventory check" against the protests of the students. As the crowd was ready to disperse, one member made a point that if books could not be checked out, they could be put on reserve so that no one else would be able to check them out after the section was reopened. The library staff had no other choice but to comply.
