You're in a time machine and land back in 1947. You'll need a job. Consider librarianship!

We have a documentary in our collection, The Hollywood Librarian: A Look at Librarians through Film [DVD 791.436 HOL], if you found the above film interesting.

One of my favorite films with a librarian as a main character is Foul Play with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase, sadly, it is out of print.

For kids interested in what goes on in libraries, borrow Katie Marsico's Working at the Library [J 027 MAR].

Things have changed a lot in the library biz over the past 64 years. Today's librarian requires a completely new level of education and interest--liking to read, though, is always going to be a benefit!

    Both John and I loved the film, Diane!

  2. My favorite librarian film is still Party Girl with Parker Posey. She is a young 20 something looking for something to do with her life and stumbles upon librarianship. It takes her awhile to get the hang of it, but when she does . . .

  3. Alas, Party Girl is also out of print. I missed seeing that one.
