Here are some extras rounding out my top picks for reel librarian portrayals.
Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)
At first glance, Miss Franny seems to be a spinster librarian, but we soon see her as a warm, friendly kindred spirit to the film’s heroine.
The Human Comedy (1943)
There is a brief, but heartwarming, scene in which the elderly librarian shares her love of books to two young boys.
Lorenzo’s Oil (1992)
One of the best reference interviews on film—an academic librarian calms an irritable patron without patronizing him.
The Music Man (1962)
The Substitute (1996)
A school librarian stands up to hoodlums—and backs it up by packing a pistol! Probably not the most family-friendly reel librarian (she’s got a potty mouth, as well) but one of the most memorable!
