Keeping your body alive and well Wilt 1978 In 1978, maybe this isn’t the worst choice for a youth collection, but 2010, no question. This book is more than 100 pages and doesn’t seem to end any time soon. I
Communicate Online Rooney 2004 This had a grand total of ZERO circs and it really isn’t that great for content either. No mention of issues of copyright. No real discussion of safety other than a comment: “if you see something
Physical dexterity for people who thought is was impossible
Chandler and Eisen
I think this is one of the oddest books I have seen lately. I don’t even know how I found it in the catalog. (Clumsy is hardly a common keyword search) The title and and the back jacket don’t do this title justice. It is a combination of Tai Chi and the power of positive thinking.

The average patron though, might not make a distinction with the Dewey numbers.

Who Is a Stranger and What Should I Do? Girard 1984 Did you know bad strangers are everywhere and are trying to get you? And you can’t recognize them…. they are everywhere. This book isn’t too bad considering its age.
The Baseball Book Complete A-to-Z encyclopedia of baseball Hollander, ed. 1982 Every library in Michigan should have weeded this title on principle when the Tigers won the World Series in 1984. (I was there!) So that is a strike 1.
Communism, Democracy and Catholic Power Blanchard 1951 Since I started floating through catalogs, I have enjoyed using a keyword search for communists since usually there is something funny or dated. I came across this title. Any Cold War era publication
How To Run a School Newspaper
If this was the 70’s, this is an excellent choice for a maybe a school or even a public library under the right circumstances. Of course there is nothing about computers or electronic information. There is an excellent style guide and the book looks like a useful reference tool. In 2010 though, it is just a curiosity from a bygone era. Did you notice that Ms. Goldberg had a bit about her husband in HER biography. Hmmm.
Make the Team in Football Anderson 1961 My knowledge of football is limited to the fact that the Detroit Lions are unlikely to see a Superbowl in my lifetime. I cannot comment on if the rules of play have significantly
