Although the technology has changed, the message still remains the same: Use the (electronic) card catalog!
This guide for children was written by Carolyn Mott and Leo B. Baisden in 1937. Mott was a teacher-librarian and Baisden was the assistant superintendent of schools in Sacramento, California.
These two authors compiled a guide for children using the library which ranged in topics from “How to Open a New Book” to “How to make a Bibliography.”
This book includes a lot of useful information, quizzes at the end of each chapter, as well as plenty of kid-friendly illustrations.
And I promise we won’t look as exasperated as the librarian depicted here, no matter how many times we direct you to the electronic card catalog. Happy to answer any questions!
