Submitter: This book is nonfiction.  Yes, really.  It was in our 629s, and now it is at my desk so I can show it to all the teachers who wonder where all the “lovely books” have gone. The lovely ones are still on the shelves.  Books like these, however, …

This book circulated a total of four times in the mid-1980s.

Holly: These future forecasting books are always so much fun! They are great choices for middle school libraries. Let’s just make sure that the future of which they speak isn’t supposed to be the present. Also, no matter how cool a book looks, four circulations 30+ years ago makes it an awful library book.

Side note: Can you just imagine some of your more “needy” patrons using jet belts? I can totally get on board with automatic highways, though. Could someone please make that happen?
