Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Fictional Librarians

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had, but I'm doing something else.  As a librarian, I'm going to feature my favorite librarians onscreen in movies and tv shows, in podcasts, and in books:  Without further ado, here we go alphabetical order by name:

Movies & TV Shows

Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell from The Mummy and The Mummy Returns

Flynn Carsen from The Librarian movie series

Rupert Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Wong from Doctor Strange, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame


The Night Vale Public Librarians from Welcome to Night Vale


Christopher Wolfe from The Great Library series by Rachel Caine

Claire from the Hell's Library series by A.J. Hackwith

Irene from The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman

Isaac Vainio from the Magic Ex Libris series by Jim C. Hines

The Librarian from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett

What are your favorite librarian characters?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. Ooh nice! I liked Irene- I need to get book two of that series.

  2. I can't remember any even though I was a librarian and should have been piling them up in my memory. I went off the board this week because I couldn't remember anyone's professions except for the teachers and since I'm one that wasn't fun. Check out my off the board list please. Thanks you. My TTT
