Track and Field for Girls

Track and Field for Girls

Submitter: Found in my local library was this book on track and field sports for young girls, giving out “current” information from 1964. I love the 60’s outfits and the hair of the women in this book. The organization mentioned in this book, Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), was eliminated in 1979.

Holly: With such an attractive cover and modern photography, it’s a wonder it doesn’t fly off the shelf! #Sarcasm

Flying Saucers, Serious Business

Submitter: My local library has a whole shelf of dusty old books on UFOs and aliens. There must have been a serious need for the collection as all of these books are from the 1960’s and 70’s. Now they seem to languish on the shelf. I think newer books on this topic might spur interest in the older titles, but all they have are these older ones. Are they worth keeping?

Holly: Nope. A few, sure, and really “important” or well-known old ones if there is a flying saucer “problem” in your town. (Roswell, NM can keep all the flying saucer books they want!) Everyone else needs to identify their flying saucer and alien collection goals and collect accordingly.
