Librarians in fiction

A Listmania! list by Amber Polo "author" (Arizona)
The list author says: "Stories and movies that feature librarians. A selection of the books and movies I found in ongoing research about librarians."
Due or Die (A Library Lover's Mystery)
1.  Due or Die (A Library Lover's Mystery) by Jenn McKinlay
The list author says:
  "One of the most believable fictional small town libraries.
A cozy mystery with a library staff (except one) you’d love to meet in your own town. The mystery was well integrated into the library setting and the librarian acted as if she really had a job she loved.
The town’s characters were just quirky enough to be both fun and believable."

Books Can Be Deceiving (A Library Lover's Mystery)
4.  Books Can Be Deceiving (A Library Lover's Mystery) by Jenn McKinlay
The list author says:
  "Librarians make the best detectives. I collect books about librarians and yogis. So what a surprise to find both in one delightful book filled with a good mystery, good food, a charming children's librarian, an 82 year old Library Board President  yogi, and lots of good books. All in a sweet small town setting. Looking forward to number 2."
