Get Help
Solving the Problems in Your Life
Gilbert
1989

This is essentially a directory of agencies and organizations aimed at young people with problems. In 1989, this would be a reasonable purchase for a teen nonfiction collection. However, in 2022 it is simply taking up shelf space. It would never occur to a teen to use a book to look up an organization. This book should have been tossed with all the telephone books and other directories when the Internet took over the job of being a giant directory.

  1. Not to be confused with the Sara Gilbert of “Roseanne,” “The Conners,” andguest gigs on “The Big Bang Theory”????

    1. I just checked. That Sara Gilbert (who is Melissa’s sister!) was born in 1975. So she would have been in the audience age range for the book and is unlikely to be the author.

  2. A serious subject, which makes me feel like flippantly asking if they have one for “this library is _so_ irrelevant” and phone numbers for ALA and LOC.
