The Librarian's Book of Lists by George M. Eberhart

51qGSd1TbtL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_ “After years spent editing American Libraries and the many editions of The Whole Library Handbook, George Eberhart has collected a raft of arcane librarian and amusing trivia for this endlessly browsable volume.” ( That’s a direct quote from the American Library Association website and it pretty much sums up the book.

There is something for everybody who works in a library, public or academic from the clerks to the director.  I particularly enjoyed the “Seattle Books Examiner’s Top Twenty Things Librarians in Public Libraries Wish Patrons Knew or Did” and “The Swiss Army Librarian’s Top Ten Pet Peeves about Patrons”. But if you are looking for serious lists, try “Roy Tennant’s Top Ten Things Library Administrators Should Know about Technology” or “Fourteen Ways Public Libraries Are Good for the Country”.



While writing this, I was listening to "Cover Girl" from "Experience Music: A TuneCore Country Sampler" by Josh Gracin
