Be Assertive!


The Assertive Librarian
Caputo
1984

Yes, another librarian title for National Library Week. I hope you are being appreciated and swamped with gifts and cash. (Yeah, me neither.)

My general feeling is that most public service librarians don’t usually have a problem being “assertive”. (When I saw the part on the last picture about “hand gestures”, immediately I thought of certain hand gestures I would like to share with a few particular people. Yeah, I am looking at you Porn Guy.)

Personality aside, most successful librarians have a definite strategy in dealing with the public. If they don’t, they are probably not going to last long. Regardless, this one could use an update!
