Discuss "Awful Library Books" and Collection Development

The fourth business meeting will have a lighter topic, featuring the well-known "Awful Library Book Librarians" from Michigan. Using embarrassing and outdated books as their muse, Mary and Holly discuss how collection development, weeding and hoarding are not all the same. Learn about how to "make a collection count" through the lens of public librarians who have done just that!
