I like. Strangely enough, when I saw the title of the thread, though, I thought it would be something along the lines of following them through the library asking, "Do you have this one in ebook format? How about this one? This one?"

And I was thinking that it might involve one of these:

http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com...e-devices/8850

Possibly the "street sweeper's daughter", aka "Scavenger's daughter."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scavenger%27s_daughter

And while she's pinned in it, hot needles beneath the fingernails. And while you are sticking in the needles, you kill her children in front of her, and she has to watch because you've already cut off her eyelids.

Was anyone else thinking that?

I was, but I usually get bored halfway through and go do something else. I have a serious problem with unfinished projects.

You've got an appointment next Friday. Don't mind the security guards at the door. They're just there for show...

Real ways to torture a librarian -

Lick your finger every time you turn a page.

Fold a page corner to mark your place.

Ask - "Can I have the book with the brown and blue cover that I was reading last month?"

Treat the library as a child caring facility and adventure playground for your hyperactive rugrats.

And worse -

Take books into the toilet and shove them down the toilet bowl.

Start little fires in the stacks.

Flick burning matches around the reading room.

Carry a machete into the reading room and when challenged, say "The Bible says to carry a sword."

...you can more simply ask for international lending. Wait- just about it. Or even inter-libraries lending. That usually terrifies them
