BUY THE BOOK! BIBLIA'S GUIDE TO WARRIOR LIBRARIANSHIP
REVIEWS BY REAL LIBRARIANS ON BACK COVER READS:
Amanda Credaro puts words in my mouth!! Her observations on librarianship are so on-target that I quote her almost every day.
Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenbury County
When the going gets tough, the tough take a break and go read Biblia.
Research Librarian, Richoh California Research Center
If this guide had been around in 1964-1965 I would not have needed to waste a whole year getting an MLS. In truth, this book would have likely meant the demise of library education all together.
Martha Jane Proctor
Library Consultant, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives
A.B. Credaro is the Steve Martin of the library world.
Head Librarian, International College, Beirut, Lebanon
I am so thankful that the Warrior Librarian is not eye-sucking boring ... the book should be given out when one gets their degree along with the sweater-vest, book bag, and comfortable shoes.
Seymour Library, Seymour, CT
The Warrior Librarian is the best thing that has happened to librarians since, well, ever.
Shorewood-Troy Public Library, Shorewood IL
When I read Andres Greeley and the Warrior Librarian, I find myself dreaming longingly of knowing people who think and talk like that.
Children's Librarian, Hannibal Free Public Library, Hannibal, Missouri
As much as I love my job, there are THOSE days ... Biblia shows me I am not alone ...

Adult Services Librarian, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, Florida
“[C]redaro provides just what the doctor ordered....Biblia's Guide to
Warrior Librarianship is recommended for librarians who need a smile, a
chuckle, or even a belly laugh. For those librarians who are humor-impaired
(and you know who you are), please exercise caution if you open this
book--it might induce a humorous reaction.”–Library Journal
“Examining the lighter side of librarianship, this book presents a
combination of great cartoons, and intelligent, witty commentary....[o]ffers
humorous advice, typical situations and dilemmas, and helpful examples that
will be appreciated by anyone who has ever worked in a library....Extremely
funny throughout....[a] work that brings a smile to your face when you are
feeling like you are the only librarian in the world with problems or even
when you are feeling just isolated. This is great Australian humour. Reward
yourself and purchase this one for a great laugh--you deserve it and will
feel better for it.”–The Australian Library Journal
“Biblia's Guide to Warrior Librarianship is unlike any book that I have come
across. With sharp, witty colloquilisms and hilarious illustrations that
perfectly match the content, the anecdotes clearly reflect our profession's
nuances, issues, and low and high points. ...This book was a joy to read.
...This is the type of book that needs to be passed around the reference
desk, with each librarian marking their favorite section for others to read.
Pages should be photocopied and placed in the break room to give fellow
staff members a chuckle. I keep my copy behind our circulation desk, and
whenever I am in the need for a good laugh, I open the book to a random
section, spend a few minutes with it, and return to my desk with a
“No librarian should be without Biblia's Guide to Warrior Librarianship, a
funny and original book of library humor. Exceptional.”–The Shy Librarian
FREQUENTLY UNASKED QUESTIONS
Isn't this book just a re-hash of the web site?
(for those who make assumptions)
Good grief, NO! The book has a few of the most popular of the web articles, but most of the content was written just for the book. It isn't on the web site.
Why should I cough up twenty-something dollars, when I can read Warrior Librarian Weekly for free?
Well, for number one, the WLW "team" has a history of dummy-spitting, and could just decide at any given moment in time to incinerate the web site and start a new project. For number two, it's pretty hard to curl up in bed with a computer to order to get nice and comfy when your read. And for number three, see the answer to the first question above. Sheesh! And we thought we were cheap ...
