The author reflects on the various bad library habits of people, particularly of faculty members. Among the things that annoy librarians is when faculty members order books without citing the correct titles and names of the authors. He also dislike it when department heads delay or cancel ordering until the last minute causing unimportant orders of books. Together with the other annoying habits he mentions, the author believes that it could lead to reforms regarding library policies and would further result to a more harmonious library management.
