Master List

This is a master list of English-language films that feature librarians, and I add to this whenever I find more films. I collect these titles from various sources, such as books, web sites, articles, and personal suggestions. Have I missed a movie? Please let me know in the comments.

Note: After I see one of the films on this title, I link it to other information provided on this site. The links indicate films I have seen; the others I have not. This means I cannot state for certain that every film on this list actually includes a librarian; it is my working list for further analysis.

Films classified as Class V do NOT include librarians, although they might mention a librarian or contain scenes set in a library.

  1. Anna says:

    Hello,
    I’ve just stumbled on your blog, it’s really interesting! Well done on watching and compiling so many films with/about librarians!
    One film I think you could add to your list is ‘I love you, Phillip Morris’ – there are a couple of scenes in a prison library with a library assistant doing a lot of shushing :). (I’ve checked IMDB but can’t confirm the name of the actor.)

    Hope this is helpful!

    Anna

    • Thanks so much, Anna — I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog! And I am adding ‘I Love You, Phillip Morris’ to my Master List right now — thanks for the tip! And the movie is available to request through my local library. BONUS! 🙂

  2. doishine says:

    An option to (from the dark side) would be Zelda Rubenstein’s bizarre librarian in the movie “Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon”, which is a satire of the slasher genre in the guise of a mockumentary…..

    • Thanks for the addition to the Master List! How big is the librarian role?

      • doishine says:

        It’s a small supporting part, but memorable due to the fact it’s the creepy psychic lady from “Poltergeist” and narrator of those “true-life” haunted house “documentaries” on cable television.
        It’s a key role, though, as she provides important (and cliched, like everything else in the film, but that’s the point of it) exposition for the protagonist in the movie.

  3. Hi Jen!

    Amazing list!

    I did a quick search and didn’t see one of my family’s favorite library-centered movies (this is coming from the mom of an 11 year-old girl). There’s a fairy-library and famous fairy librarian and archivist in a 2012 Tinkerbell movie, “Secret of the Wings”. It’s beautifully animated and not as painful to watch/enjoy as it sounds.

    Thanks for the fun! Looking forward to reading and discovering more films…

  4. I watched Teen Wolf Too and there is a brief scene in a school library which shows Jason Bateman and a librarian.

  5. I came here to suggest The Pit but I see it’s already on your list. Very creepy movie that’s hard to find (there’s a low resolution copy on YouTube). I have it on VHS but I no longer have a working VCR.

    If I had to guess going by your criteria, I would say the librarian is a Class I but I’ll leave that to you to decide.

  6. I was sure that nobody would have suggested Alice in Wonderland (1976) but low and behold, there it is on the list.

    I’ll just add that the first 8 minutes are spent in a library, as mousy librarian Alice (Kristine De Bell) goes about her work while breaking into song. She definitely does not fit the stereotype of a typical librarian.

    There are a couple different versions of this, one of which the director added some hardcore x-rated scenes after the fact. If that might deter you from watching, the other version is rated R and much better without the tacked-on scenes.

    If you are still skeptical, you can read Roger Ebert’s positive review of the film, if you value his opinion. http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/alice-in-wonderland-1976

    Kristine De Bell went on to have a great acting career, including a role as a C.I.T. in my favourite camp comedy, Meatballs. She recently returned to acting after a long absence, to raise her kids.

  7. Hello Jen

    I was wondering if you decided what movie you will be reviewing for Halloween? You’ve said that if you could track down a copy of The Pit, it would be perfect for the holiday.

    Good news!

    The Pit on Blu-ray can now be pre-ordered on Amazon and will be available on Oct 18th.

    I’m really curious to know what you’d think of it.

    • Thanks for your comment and question! It takes some time for me to thoroughly review films, so I’m thinking there may not be enough time to get a copy of the movie (which you said isn’t available until Oct. 18), watch it multiple times, take notes, take pics, write the blog post, and get it posted by the end of this October… BUT I can try. Thanks for the tip about The Pit coming out soon — I also noted that it’s coming out on DVD. (I don’t have a Blu-ray machine.)
