Awful Library Books


Mary and Holly are Michigan librarians who are really into "weeding," meaning they strive to keep their books relevant and "weed" out dated, damaged, and just plain wrong titles.  Recently featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the two bibliophiles created a submitter-based blog from library-goers all over.
These books are just odd, outdated or maybe should be reconsidered under a current interpretation of collection policies. In no way should the opinions of Mary and Holly be interpreted as a standard for every library.  We just want to have a few chuckles and talk about library collections.

There are lots of curiosities besides the one I chose above.  I really got a kick out of this one, as well as this one.  All around, a fun site!  Link.

"It doesn't kill the dog"? I don't know. Have you ever seen a dog die of shame?

"Please don't wear that when you walk me..."

What's wrong with knitting with dog hair? Beats having to sweep it up all the time (I share my home with a Great Pyrenees mix and a Husky mix).
