It's bad form to quote an entire post, but here it is anyway:
Every library has at least one librarian who is a graphic novel enthusiast. This person will argue vehemently for a new graphic novel collection for your library. Give him a paltry budget to spend each year just to shut him up. It will be money well spent.
From the always-useful A librarian's guide to etiquette. We must have at least half a dozen graphic novel enthusiasts between us. Does that mean we should ask for six times the budget?
