This is our version of an ugly sweater contest: the fourth annual MUSTIES!

On or after December 13th, one ambassador from each NEKLS member library will be able to vote for the M.U.S.T.I.E.st or W.O.R.S.T. loaned item that has been weeded from a library’s collection in 2023. All NEKLS members (be they school, academic, public, or special) may submit photos of up to (3) three retired items (cake pans, DVDs, books, anything you think has a shot at the grand prize). We want you to weed, and we want to reward you!

Submissions will be anonymous until voting ends at 5 PM, on Tuesday December 19th. The winners will then be announced, and prizes will be awarded.

Send photo submissions of up to three weeded items to dalexander@nekls.org by noon on December 12, 2023 (multiple photos of materials are allowed). Updates will be posted to nekls.org and to our NEKLS-L mailing list.… Read the rest
