A promotional peek behind The Librarian

This past weekend, I finally got around to watching the 3rd movie in The Librarian TV movie trilogy, The Librarian:  The Curse of the Judas Chalice (TV, 2008). It was released when I had moved overseas, so I never watched it when it aired on TV. It got me thinking about when a fellow librarian kindly sent me a package of promotional materials back when the 2nd of the series, The Librarian:  Return to King Solomon’s Mines (TV, 2006), was coming out. And I realized I hadn’t yet shared a peek at those materials on this blog.

Behold my personal file box of Reel Librarians ephemera (entitled “Librarian Stuff”):

The folder peeking out behind the packet of saucy librarian postcards is full of those promotional materials for The Librarian. And here’s a closer look:

Reel Librarians:  Promotional materials for The Librarian

Included in the packet is an excerpt from a comic book tie-in, write-ups of characters and artifacts “from the vault,” and my favorite item, Flynn Carsen’s passport:

Reel Librarians:  Passport for The Librarian

My favorite details on the passport are the stamps — quite realistic-looking, no? — that reflect The Librarian’s past adventures. Plus, the bio that points out that he is “a bit awkward meeting women” but that he’s “a brave, resourceful, and (most importantly) smart hero.”

Have you watched the entire Librarian TV trilogy? Please leave a comment and let me know!

    This is SO cool. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. I love stuff like this! My first two jobs (beginning at age 14) were as an assistant at my High School Library then at the local city Library. For a while I also worked at a local public access cable station, where I worked cameras and sometimes did the Technical Directing on shoots (Take camera Three, fade up to camera One..). Later I got another Library assistant position at a Community College. So your blog is near and dear to me on so many levels.
