Bonus reel librarian love on ALA’s I Love Libraries blog

If you are a fan and reader of this Reel Librarians blog (as always, thank you!), then you will probably also love the I Love Libraries blog, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) that shines the spotlight on fun stories for library lovers. A few weeks ago, I was super excited (and surprised!) to be contacted by a content manager at the I Love Libraries site, who asked me about collaborating on a guest post and exploring some questions about librarians in film and media. It took me about two seconds to say YES. ❤

The resulting post, “What Hollywood Gets Wrong (and Right!) about Librarians” is live on the I Love Libraries site, so please check it out! Here are the questions that I explore in the post:

  • What are some things Hollywood gets wrong in its portrayal of libraries and librarians?
  • What are some things Hollywood gets right in its portrayal of libraries and librarians?
  • How has the portrayal of librarians in media changed over the years?
  • Do you have any “guilty pleasure” portrayals of librarians in Hollywood?

For more fun stories for library lovers, please consider subscribing to the I Love Libraries newsletter.
