"The Library of Doom is the world's largest collection of strange and dangerous books. The Librarian's duty is to keep the books from falling into the hands of those who would use them for evil purposes."
So begins each of Michael Dahl's series of books about the Library of Doom. In each of these little books (they really do take about 5 minutes apiece to read), the Librarian is the hero as he must figure out how to defeat the Spellbinder, the Paper Bats, the Beast of Books, the Collector, the Word Eater, the Lizard Bookends and the other malevolent invaders of the Library of Doom.
The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library has 12 of these new books, which can be found on the "new" shelves near the entrance to the Children's Department.
