Reading another discussion, got me thinking...... i volunteer at used book sale room for our FOL and we have a "classics" shelf. how old do the books need to be before they are officially "classic" and should we include children's classics on that shelf?

Everyone has a different opinion, but for me I chose 50 years or older.
