Growing up in Cincinnati, I remember those.
I expected them to have books like "How to Chop Tops", Unusual Shotgun loads for the Home Reloader, Warships of the Imperial Japanese Navy, but nooo... They had novels, kids books, magazines, self-help, gardening, and general history books for the masses. Ho hum.
Then, when I started driving, I would occasionally get stuck behind one driven by the oldest, most myopic librarian in the Tri-County area.
Interesting memories of a good idea for communities.
