WORD OF THE WEEK: BIBLIOKLEPT 

   Here's our last installment from A.Word.A.Day, available 
   at this address:  http://www.wordsmith.org/awad/index.html 

   biblioklept (BIB-lee-uh-klept) noun 

      A person who steals books. 

   [Biblio- book + Greek klept thief.] 

   "Towards the Persons who frequent your Library maintain a 
   courteous Demeanour, but the utmost Vigilance. For as it is 
   your duty to guard well the Books which are the Riches of 
   your Treasury, so you cannot afford to relax those Restrictions 
   which may save you from Despoilment and the most grievous 
   Loss. The Biblioklept or Thief of Books is your eternal Foe." 
   Charles Robinson, April hath 30 days, Library Administrator's 
   Digest Mar 1, 2000.
