[QUOTE="squirt, post: 4999738]poles for pushing barges through low waters or channels?[/QUOTE]
"Pole" is part of the name by which all but the folded one on the left go by. :clap:
But nothing to do with waterways.

[QUOTE="Manzy, post: 4999874]the first one looks like it opens and you can hold something in it

the second one looks like the top opens

is it to hold a blade? or a liquid?

Light Saber?
[/QUOTE]
They all open and they already have other parts inside. Opening them turns them into something other than a pole.

[QUOTE="Romford Lad, post: 5000329]I was just wondering, partly because I can't think of anything else ~ if they were map/chart holders [I'm a bit thrown with the circular one with this] but the second one down looks as though it's in two pieces with a hook in the middle and a hanging hook at the top! [/QUOTE]
Nothing directly to do with maps or charts, but there is a possibility of such things being nearby.

[QUOTE="Romford Lad, post: 5000378]What about a measuring pole for liquids.....[/QUOTE]
Nothing to do with either measuring or liquids.

[QUOTE="muchtrouble10, post: 5000380]Could they be used to open and close skylights?[/QUOTE]
:thinking:
Well, yes, but not directly. They are not openers themselves, and not really designed to assist in opening, but could help if the skylight was difficult to reach.

Nope, they're designed for use indoors, in a specific room, or at least a room with specific characteristics.

:clap:
You have the room.

Now, what would you need of this length in a library?

Just how big is this library ~ is it for pushing books back, or retrieving a book

Where are the books kept in a library? What are the dimensions of where the books are kept, especially in an old fashioned library?

Definitely for retrieving, so obviously for putting back too. What would you use?
