Submitter: I have a submission for a book I just weeded from our collection. We are a suburban community college located outside of Philadelphia. I found this gem in the Nursing section of our library’s collection. The contents of the book are not awful – there is a great section on nutrition and the various types of yoga methods that exist. The section on practicing yoga nutrition is still relevant today even though the book is 43 years old. However, there are much newer titles out there. This book has not circulated in years and the photos of men doing yoga in leisure suits probably do not help. The women performing yoga moves are in very dated leotards. Some of these women also look like they may have been Charles Manson followers at on time.
Holly: Loooove the photos! Submitter is right that there are newer titles out there. There are lots of books on lots of topics out there that are relevant and even accurate, but so outdated in layout, photos, and style that no library patrons want to pick them up. If it hasn’t circulated in years, that’s a good indicator that it is no longer needed.
