Abstract

Reviews and Remarks 245 teens and children. Ways to respond positively to patrons exhibiting symp- toms of anxiety or who are belligerent and out of control are discussed, as well as banning those users who consistently are disruptive. There is a series of practical tips on ways to make the library safer, including cash handling, dealing with keys and personal belongings, safely working alone, checking all areas when closing up, and keeping unautho- rized areas locked. Graham also shares his perceptions on how to design a safer library facility. Sample forms, including the daily security form, trespass log, and potential problem logs are illustrated. Finally, there is information dedicated to the hiring, handling, and evaluating of security staff. This book is highly recommended. A copy should be placed in every library staff room and made available to employees who fear their library is out of control. Reviewed by Ray L.
