Teen Legal Rights for the 1990s


Teen Legal Rights
A Guide for the ’90s

Some books are so obvious to weed. This one practically has a neon sign over it saying “weed me!”

When you are my age the 1990s seem like yesterday. In terms of a public library teen collection, the 1990s should be considered ancient history. A good rule of thumb: books should be no older than the teens, and definitely not older than parents of teens.

Just like medical info, legal information has a very short shelf life. Holly and I both proponents of weeding by walking around (aka low effort weeding). Visit your collections and just take a brief look at the collections. (I mean no more than 5 minutes.)

You will be surprised at the number of titles that will be obvious weeds. No reports, no carts, no organization necessary. Do not over think this or turn it into a major project. Limit yourself to a handful of items at a time. No, this is not a solution for a collection overhaul or major weeding project. Just grab the low hanging fruit as you walk around the library as part of your daily work.

Weed away,
