Library card catalogue, using the Dewey decimal system!

Take a trip down memory lane with Lesley M.M. Blume's Let's Bring Back ($19.95; Chronicle), an ode to more than 700 delightful items and traditions lost over time. See our favorite revival-worthy entries.
Library card catalogue and the Dewey Decimal System. This makes us very nostalgic. And sneezy. #books
library card catalogue ---almost a relic in today's electronic age,,,do you remember the Dewey Decimal system.....????? ha ha ha ha
library card catalogue - I feel like we should get the time back in our lives that we wasted learning the Dewey Decimal System. lol
Library card catalogue. Can't you just remember sliding out those old heavy drawers? Kids don't even know about the Dewey Decimal System anymore!
The Dewey Decimal System! - A library card catalogue ---almost a relic in today's electronic age Occasionally someone will say "card catalog" to the students and they say, "what's that?"
Want to blow a kids mind? Tell them that the research paper due next week has to be done using ONLY the library card catalogue and the Dewey Decimal System! NO COMPUTERS OR SEARCH ENGINE ALLOWED! Think they'd appreciate us "old farts" a little more then? In today's world, having to do a research paper the old school way is far worse than having "to walk to school, in the snow, up a hill both ways"!
library card catalog...fond childhood memories!
A search engine circa 1980 =) old school!

An old lady! HaHa!
The blackboards with the cursive writing letters above were in every elementary school classroom.

Remember this glue in elementary school?
Happy Thoughts, Remember This, Glue Remember, Childhood Memories, Ole Days, School Glue, Elementary Schools
Remember this glue in elementary school? Glue would adhere to the rubber tip and the next time you wanted to use it you had to peel it off before any glue would come out.
Remember this glue in elementary school? - not sure if this is American but we had very similar with the rubbery tops!
Remember this glue in elementary school? Rubber tip had a little slit in it. When you pressed down, the glue came out.

Reader Time, Memories Nostalgia, Things Remembered, Loved Fridays, Grade Schools, Childhood Memories, 70S, 60S, Weekly Readers
Weekly Reader, you have to be over 65 to remember these. Grade schools used them back in the 40-50's.
Weekly Reader - I just found a stack of Weekly Readers and Science World magazines saved from my grade school days of the 60's. Amazingly a prime theme I saw was "global freezing." Guess they couldn't find a way to blame the rich for that so they switched to "global warming,"
I always loved the day each week when we got our Weekly Readers. Great memory.
Weekly Reader I loved when we got these :D A favorite . Lp
