Some of the best fictional librariansPosted: November 12, 2018
We love our Griffith University librarians the best 😍.
But, as a whole, we think librarians are pretty awesome.
So today, we thought we’d take a look at some of the best fictional librarians to hit our screens.
Rupert Giles – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy could never have slayed the amount of vampires she did if it wasn’t for her trusty librarian mentor, Rupert Giles. Giles is Buffy’s ‘Watcher’, a member of a secret council that aims to prepare ‘Slayers’ to fight vampires and other demonic forces. His guise? Being the librarian at Buffy’s high school, Sunnydale High.
Barbara Gordon – Batgirl
Who thinks there are not nearly enough superhero librarians? #WeDo. Thank goodness for Batgirl. Barbara Gordon – head of Gotham City Public library by day, crime-fighting extraordinaire by night.
The Gray Lady – Ghostbusters
The Gray Lady is the ghost of librarian, Eleanor Twitty, and the very first ghost encountered by the Ghostbusters. While she only plays a minor part in the movie, the Ghostbusters video game has an entire Library level she features in!
Mary – Party Girl
Everyone loves a classic ’90s comedy. We especially love this movie as the main character in Party Girl, Mary, is a librarian. While she may be a tad reckless, her love of working in libraries eventually leads her to settle down.
Taystee – Orange is the New Black
Taystee, an inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary, finds solace through working in the prison library. Through this, she’s developed a good understanding of the law, and often provides her fellow inmates with advice.
