Abstract: This paper identified four human threats affecting Readers unit of Ibrahim Babangida Library (IBL) of Modibbo Adama University of Technology (MAUTECH), Yola. Data on threats were obtained using questionnaire and personal interview, the data obtained were analyzed using Analytic hierarchy Process (AHP). The results obtained revealed that reshuffle reshuffles is the severest threat with the weight (WSB = 0.289), stealing with the weight (WSA =0.282), mutilation (WSC = 0.263), and damage with the weight (WSD =0.143) is last. The result also shows that the most frequent threat is damage of material with the weight (WFD =0.358), next to it is reshuffle with weight (WFB = 0.337), mutilation with weight (WFC = 0.220) and lastly stealing with weight (WFA =0.085). We recommended that management should implore more strict security measures and also orient library users on threats to library materials and resources.
