After years spent editing American Libraries and the many editions of The Whole Library Handbook, George Eberhart has collected a raft of arcane librariana and amusing trivia for this endlessly browsable volume. Equally suitable for the reference shelf and the staff lounge, the dozens of wide-ranging lists in this book include: 12 ways libraries are good for the country, How to say "Where is the library?" in 30 different languages, 10 intriguing paper defects, 5 library-related birdsongs, Top 10 silly reasons to ban a book. The mixture of serious topics, tongue-in-cheek items, and outright silliness provides something to please everyone familiar with libraries, making a fun read and a wonderful gift.
