This book is truly every librarians dream come true. After fighting budget battles over and over again, librarian Serenity has lost her library funding. Whats a librarian gonna do? How about ripping off the city thats ripping off its citizens? Serenity begins helping herself to the funds that local politicians have been setting aside for their own personal rainy day . With the money she amasses she can build a library to thrill readers everywhere. Problem is, those politicians arent too thrilled to see their money disappearing and they plan to do anything to get it back. Why in the world are libraries always under threat? A funny, moving story of our most precious institutions under threat
Half of all profit from MAD Librarian will go to the MAD Librarian Fund for librarians (madlibrarian.org.) The intended audience for this book is anyone who is mad about all that our libraries have to do with too little support, and dream of what they could do with more.

I wanted to like this book more than I did. It‘s about a librarian who gets tired of having to beg for every scrap of money, so she becomes Robin Hood to build her library into the knowledge center she wants it to be. It‘s slow in places. What I really hated though is peripheral— nobody wanted to call the new, improved library a “library,” and they offered services real libraries would not because of liability issues — medical and legal advice.

My book for jury duty today while I wait for something to happen. I hope I don‘t get kept here all day.

mcctrish This sounds like an awesome. I hope you get sent home fast 1y
KathyWheeler @mcctrish As a librarian, though, the villain makes me angrier than I need to be. 😄 1y

Hey, I apologize for being awkward on Litsy — I‘m just learning.
Until I figure it out,here‘s a little thank you. If you haven‘t bought MAD Librarian, don‘t. I‘m going to make it free on Kindle next Thursday. And if you were already kind enough to buy a copy, I really want to thank you. Just send me an email (michaelguillebeau@gmail.com) and tell me which of my other books you‘d like, and I‘ll give it to you as an Amazon gift.
Again, thanks.

JoScho Welcome to Litsy! I hope you love it here 💖 2y

Not a blurb, but a thank you to everyone here, particularly sledge and sunshine. Librarians are amazing creatures and it was an honor to tell their story. And every word was true- particularly when Amanda and SS rob and kill to keep their library alive. Thank you for leaving me alive to tell the tale.

Starting celebrations for my dear friend #MichaelGuillebau! His latest book #MADLibrarian just won the Foreward Indie Gold Award for Humor. It was a joy to watch his creative process in my library and to be his inspiration along with my team. (Yes, there is self-promotion all over this.) I did the easy part being his friend. Mike did the heavy lifting! Congratulations, Friend!! 🍾🎉😎🌴

sunshine_librarian Yay!!!!!!! Congrats to Mike! Loved this book! 2y

Summer comes to an end, so is our #BookSwap book club #SummerReads. In Sep, we chose 'Suspense' as our theme, and selected five books. I read 'MAD Librarian', here is full review.
It's like 'Breaking BAD' of books https://www.mybookswap.club/single-post/2017/09/30/We-dont-do-much-suspense-but-...

I was nominated by @emily_m_tubb and @Aninski to make some #FiveStarPredictions based on my TBR stacks. Technically I don't have my hands on the top two books yet; however, that doesn't stop me from predicting how much I hope I'll love them. 💜📚💙📚❤️

If you haven't been tagged already and care to join in by making your own TBR predictions then I nominate @MinDea @JenP @saguarosally

saguarosally Oh man. My next reading slot is in January lol 2y
