Clare Qualmann sent us a list of librarians on film

'I picked this list up at INIVA's recent Hollywood Librarian event organised by Holly Callaghan. It was published by Ann O'Brien, Martin Raish, and BI-L (The Bibliographic Instruction Discussion Group) as The Image of the Librarian in Commercial Motion Pictures: An Annotated Filmography, in Collection Management journal 17(3) (1993): 61-84. More info on Martin Raish's online directory'

. Batman (the 1967 version) - Batgirl, aka Barbara Gordon, was a librarian in the downtown branch of the Gotham public Library.
. Desk Set (1957) - Katharine Hepburn (whose sister is a real life librarian) is the reference librarian for a TV network.
. Name of the Rose (1986) - The library holds the key to the whole mystery.
. Something Wicked this Way Comes (1983) - Jason Robards Jr. is a meek librarian with some dark secrets, but is the only person in town to confront the evil brought by the traveling carnival.
. Sophie's Choice - Meryl Streep plays Sophie, a Polish immigrant in America who goes to the library to get a book by her beloved Emily Dickinson, but in her heavy accent she asks for the american poet 'Emil Dickens' for which the librarian lambasts her for her ignorance, as Charles Dickens was not an American, nor did he write poetry.
. Storm Center (1956) - Bette Davis, the fiery small town librarian, fights censorship and suppression of free speech by refusing to expurgate a book on communism.
. The Time Machine (1962) - Rod Taylor builds a time machine and travels far into the future, where he encounters two distinct societies who know nothing of their past. He is taken to a dusty old place where there is a shelf of disintegrating books.....
. You're a Big Boy Now (1967) - Peter Kastner is a 19 year old page in the New York Public Library trying to make his way through the usual rites of passage.

'The list was compiled back in 1993 so could have more added - including Party Girl (1995) starring Parker Posey and of course The Shawshank Redemption (1994).'
