Who is the Librarian?

Over the years, since taking over the Hermetic Library, I’ve been bemused that I’ve been called enigmatic, anonymous, mysterious, and various other similar epithets as the Librarian. I’ve come to joke about myself as having a secret identity … the Enigmatic Super Villain known only as the Librarian!

Promote the library

If you are on a social networking site, you can support The Hermetic Library by letting people know about the content you like on The Hermetic Library. There's a variety of ways to do this, including clicking on the “Bookmark” link in the upper right corner of most pages. On Twitter you can follow and on Facebook you can like The Hermetic Library to show your support to your friends and acquaintances.

Also, if you have a website or blog anywhere online, you can post about or simply link to The Hermetic Library. This helps people find the site from someone they trust to recommend useful and important information like what is available at The Hermetic Library.

Grab the latest releases from the Anthology Project

The Hermetic Library has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. Beginning in 2011, I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these works and the participants who have contributed to this benefit anthology project. All proceeds from anthology sales support the library to help cover hosting costs and other expenses like materials acquisitions.

There are ad banners around the site, on many pages. So, simply by using the site you can support The Hermetic Library. However, we’ve teamed up Project Wonderful to help enable more relevant ads to be placed on the site than were available with some other networks. (Frankly, we got really tired of some of the ads from huge national corporations with no interest in or relevance to the site!) This lets us create a way that having ads on the site is also very much about supporting the wider community. Now our advertising helps the community reach out to each other.

Do you have an esoteric blog or website of your own which you'd like to let people know about? Perhaps you’ve authored a book or been a guest on a podcast and want to get the word out, and know that the audience of The Hermetic Library is your potential audience; now you can!
