Passive Aggressive Librarians with Printers on the Rampage

The secret's out.  There is another stereotype for librarians out right now, passive aggressiveness.

To celebrate National Library week, Buzzfeed collected 20 Passive Aggressive Library Signs.  If I knew they were looking for contributions, I could have added another 20 to that.

Here's to National Library Week!


  1. I don't think it's a secret that librarians are a passive aggressive bunch -- most of the ones I've met would rather go out of their way not to confront someone in favor of sending an email, or more likely, an anonymous little namby-pamby post-it note on someone's screen.

  2. Forgot to use my sarcasm font, but I completely agree with you.
    I think dealing with the mix bag that is the general public, the best way to act is passive aggressive. Librarians are way too nice.
