Youth Services FLASH (7/2/2015)

Just a FLASH of insights, ideas and news for you…..
 Awful Library Books-Hoarding is not collection developmentJust for fun…have a look at some ‘gems’ that are found on library shelves  But, more important…see the tabs that highlight WHY we weed and the links to sites for weeding methods etc.  Also remember, STLS can assist you in a variety of ways with your weeding project. Don’t hesitate to connect with Lorie if you need some help.
