Where do I begin? A love story.

Welcome to my new site about librarians in film!

For me, librarians + movies = love! Technically, this site is a new (and hopefully more permanent) incarnation of my previous “Reel Librarians” site, which I had developed off a previous work site and server. But the site’s back now – hopefully, better than ever. Please check back often or sign up for RSS or email updates.

Some features of the site to also explore:

  • Movie Lists, including a Master List of English-language films that feature librarians
  • Role Call, where I’ve highlighted character roles, or types, for reel librarians
  • Reel Substance, in which I’ve placed films into categories according to how important the librarians are to the film

So where did my interest in reel librarians begin?

I am a proud second-generation librarian — my mother is a (retired) school librarian. We should have both known I would become a librarian, because when I was young, I took (many) stacks of index cards and made a card catalog for my own personal collection of books and magazines. FOR FUN! And I literally grew up in a library — my parents had 5 library collections within our house:  1 for children’s books, 1 for fiction, 1 for non-fiction, 1 for biographies, and 1 for movies. We lived in the country, with only one TV channel available. Therefore, I grew up watching movies!

So this site, connecting librarians and movies, is a perfect combination of what I grew up on and loved — and I hope you will enjoy it a little bit, as well!
