The other way of looking at this is that if your job finishes when the library closes, you want to leave on time. So on that basis, I'm with the librarians over your bladder!

Just to mention Stoke Newington, Shoreditch and Stamford Hill all have libraries open 1-5pm on Sundays.

And in defence of the austere member of staff, libraries on Sundays often run with limited staff and it can be a struggle to clear the building at closing. The toilets too can end up being used/misused by various miscreants etc and if there going to be issues clearing them, it's better to have to deal with them at 4.45 rather than 5 - especially since most staff don't actively choose to work Sundays, and have other things to do when the library closes.

None the less, a good statement that libraries are a hard won resource for local people, which we should defend.
