Submitter: I’m teen librarian working in a public library in [Louisiana] and I have been weeding our teen nonfiction section and separating it from the adult nonfiction. I’ve come across many awful books, but just recently I’ve found a truly awful book. Surely there are new books on this topic. This book is from 1972! 44 years old! This book is 44 years old! I can’t believe my library still has this book much less thinks that teens would want to check it out.
Holly: Good catch. It doesn’t belong in either collection – adult or teen non-fiction! It belongs in the book sale, where it will be sold in a matter of minutes. Sweet lampshade hat, though (see image below).
