It’s National Library Week everyone! This week we will be featuring some lovely library themed posts. If you are a library lover this is the time to show it! Visit your local library this week and while you are at it, how about opening that wallet and support your community’s library.
Also, make sure you enter our Knock Knock Contest for your own personal library kit!
Submitter: This book is particularly awful as it was on the regular non-fiction shelf in a high school library. This wasn’t even on a professional shelf being kept for historic value after the elimination of the card catalog 35 years ago! It was actually there for student use! It is also an unbelievably unnecessary tome; any librarian (or anyone with an ounce of common sense) could figure out how to alphabetize the card catalog without this instructional manual.
Holly: What a colossal waste of space. It is kind of neat as a historical perspective, but unless that is your library’s mission – to keep things for historic value – then it is really useless. Put it in someone’s office, where it will be found when they retire 30 years from now. We’ll post it again when you find it there in 2043 (on it’s 101st birthday).
