#Weeding or #Deselection is one of my favorite things to do at the library. Here is a great article that encourages weeding and explains the importance of weeding to patrons.

This is my first time having to use roadside assistance. Thank goodness I have it. If you don't, it is a good investment for $6.60.

+Joaquin Byrd have you heard the news?

Spare a thought for Janet Jackson fans. Seven years have already passed since her last studio LP, 2008's underrated Discipline, and the legendary diva recently shut down rumors that she was embarking on a comeback. Instead, the pop pioneer is devoting her time to charitable causes and married life with billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana. There could, however, be some light at the end of the tunnel. The Las Vegas Sun claims Damita Jo has signed on...

There is a difference between Africans and African-Americans. Providing literature for one about the other may not be effective in terms of providing #diversity in #collectiondevelopment. Consider the population you serve first. #WeNeedDiverseBooks

Another reason to #Weed  your #library  collection. No, we don't want to be overly politically correct, but you don't want to be downright offensive either.

"One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back."

Sounds familiar doesn't it. Think you have a clue to how the story ends, then check out "Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass" by Meg Medina.
