    library card catalog...fond childhood memories!

  • Jody Gernandt

    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"!

Remember when... checking out books. I used to like reading all the names below mine.

you know, it wasn't just the fun of flipping through cards, the joy of locating the book you REALLY WANTED, but there was also a fragrance to the card catalog.

Card Catalog- I knew the Dewey Decimal System.

Library Card. When I was a child, I lived for going to the library & checking out mountains of books.

Card catalog - the only way to find library books! And you could pull it out and take it to your table since it was sometimes a time-consuming process.
