Throwback Thursday

When I was a kid, this was how I googled

If I needed to find information on a subject quickly, I consulted the encyclopedia.

If I needed to find more in depth information, I looked in here, the card catalog

If I needed help to search my topic, I aked the librarian


  1. Times have certainly changed, haven't they?

  2. Were you a member of the 'Look It Up Club?' (my parents were big on 'clubs' when we were growing up! LOL) It used to take me forever to find what I was looking for in the encyclopedia because I was side tracked by so many interesting other articles.

    1. Yeah, I was a member of that club, too. One of my favorite things to do as a kid was to read the dictionary and encyclopedia for fun. I had a children's Golden Book Encyclopedia and Funk and Wagnalls.
