Awful Library Books

Time Magazine's Dan Fletcher wrote about a couple of Detroit area librarians who started a blog called "Awful Library Books". Apparently they were frustrated by the aging books in their stacks and looking for a way to punch up an upcoming speech. As the article says, they have certainly struck a nerve with frustrated librarians, who have to deal with such anthropological finds on their shelves because libraries lack funds to update their collections. Weeding shelves is a task that requires proper funding. Let's hope that their blog highlights the need for such funding and in the meantime we can laugh at some of the entries they list.
