Card Catalog History

Old books smell, but do old card catalog cards? Fortunately, they don’t. They do, however, show the awesome history of Hamilton County Library and the books that are kept there. Even though stamping Library Books is a thing of the past, seeing these old catalog cards is a good reminder that reading is the most important skill someone can have.


The stamped date on some of these cards go all the way back to May 1968! That’s 49 years ago! Some books and authors last forever.
