We Can Teach You to Play Hockey
Submitter: No, they can’t!! And dig the modern equipment, not to mention the training method of stick jumping.
Holly: I’ll be honest: I don’t know much about hockey training. That said, there are newer books on the subject. Even if the concepts haven’t changed, this is an example of wanting the public to find books on the shelves that they can relate to. When they see this, they think, “Wow, my public library doesn’t have anything newer than 1970!” and start to assume that everything you have and everything you do is equally irrelevant. I’ll argue that there is a psychological aspect to keeping public library collections current. Also, a lot of people interested in teaching kids to play hockey are people who have kids – and they were very likely born around or after 1970!
