Librarians in Pop Culture
The stereotypical librarian is ubiquitous in pop culture. We have all seen the old maid, prim, slightly older woman with her hair in a bun shushing people in television, movies, advertisements and books. As a librarian I sometimes find these funny and sometimes not, depending upon the context in which they are shown. This page contains images of librarians some of which are flattering and some not. I do want to take a moment to defend Marion the Librarian from the film The Music Man. As an icon, she tends to be the one librarians mention as everything we are fighting against. However, Marion is a true defender of the first amendment and free speech. This is what the Library Bill of Rights is all about.
Give Marion a break.
