Books We Just  Weeded…
Anne of Green Gables Montgomery 1987 (paperback) original copyright 1908
A friend sent me some scans of this poor book from an elementary school library. It was only recently weeded, but had looked awful for years. This paperback had been in the collection for years and had great circulation. Obviously the tape and other “repairs” were some kind of heroic attempt to save this paperback. It’s 2013, finally we can put this book out of OUR misery.

Sometimes, we just have to weed. Even after some “heroic attempts” are made, there’s just nothing more we can do.

Lovely addition to these vintage ads for libraries and reading.

Since we’re on a nostalgia kick, we had to share this one, too.

Recently spotted in our collection: Patrons Are People: How to Be a Model Librarian, published by the American Library Association in 1956 and full of helpful hints prepared and illustrated by Sarah Leslie Wallace.

My, how things change.
