Librarians in pop culture

Working in a library has me thinking about my favorite librarians in pop culture. Interestingly, they’re mostly women, which is true of the profession at large, though that’s changing slowly.

Here’s a sampling of my best loved librarians, and library-centered stories, music, and films:

1. Parker Posey as Mary in Party Girl

2. Garth Nix’s Lirael

3. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, “Young Adult Friction”

4. Kelly Link, “Water off a Black Dog’s Back” in Stranger Than Fiction

5. Green Day, “At the Library”
