About the Author:

A security professional for more than 25 years, including 17 years as the security manager of the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, Warren Graham left the library in 2006 to establish Warren Davis Graham Training and Consulting. Graham has made countless presentations and is a leading speaker internationally on practical day-to-day library security procedures.

Review:

"This short guide packs a great deal of tips into nine succinct chapters ... what this book does best is require the reader to reflect on their own behaviors and to examine their confidence level when working with problem patrons." --Voice of Youth Advocates

"A no-nonsense practical guide to keeping a library safe and secure while remaining open and accessible to the public." --Midwest Book Review
