No librarian (not even old-fashioned ones like me) operates under the delusion that weeding our collections should never take place. But it should always be done with care, integrity, and a deep knowledge of both the collection and patron need.
Major shit going down at the Urbana Free Library, where library director Deb Lissak decided to quickly get rid of the majority of the non-fiction collection while the librarian in charge of said collection was on vacation. She completely decimated some of the strongest parts of the collection in a matter of days. I support weeding, but what this woman did was a super-shady move in which she used a chainsaw to do a job that requires tweezers. Kudos to GSLISers, librarians, and other concerned folks in the community for exposing this.
Yes! Do it! Last week’s was such a great Jinksy episode. He unfortunately gets very few. This has also been a pretty solid (if not slightly traumatic) season, so I recommend it on the whole as well!
To kick off their Summer Reading Program this year, the Seattle Public Library decided to break the world record for longest book domino chain. This is the result.
