Public Library weeding all right by me

today was our public libraries used book sale. I managed to pick up about a dozen books. Mostly military history and an orphaned volume of Sir John A. McDonald's letters [unfortunately only volume II]. This led to me wondering about how the weeding process gets done. Here are some interesting links.

And no I don't think I'll be weeding my own library anytime soon
