Shhh! Librarians at the Movies
Librarians onscreen do more than wear sensible shoes and shush people! Check out It’s a Wonderful Life for Donna Reed as a spinster librarian, then Katharine Hepburn in Desk Set or Parkey Posey in Party Girl for more glamorous types. Whether it’s the quintessential Marian the Librarian in The Music Man or the hostile librarian in Sophie’s Choice, there’s a librarian for everyone. Intrigued? A real-life librarian has put together an entire website devoted to librarians in film.
