SDSL RACE Webinars

Just Weed It!
Presented by Brenda Hemmelman

  • Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 10:30 – 11:30 am CT; 9:30- 10:30 am MT
  • Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 4:15 – 5:15 pm CT: 3:15 – 4:15 pm MT

Join Brenda Hemmelman as she shares with you some great ideas on weeding. We all need to do it! To get you in the spirit Brenda has created a lyric from Michael Jackson's song "Beat It."

Sing it yourself and we will see you then:

You better weed, you better do what you should
Don't wanna see no ugly shelves and old info
You wanna be tough, Mary Bushing would
So weed it, just weed it!
Increase your circulation, you need it
Your library is important, and you gotta show how
Just weed it!
