5 Favorites - Literary Librarians for National Library Week

Linking up today with Moxie Wife 5 Favorites to bring you my 5 favorite Literary Librarians. 

1.
 

"Library Lil" by Suzanne Williams and Illustrated by Steven Kellogg

"By the time she was eight, Lil had read every children's book in the library and was working her way through the encyclopedias. So it's no surprise when she grows up to become a librarian. When a storm knocks out the town's electricity one night, Lil knows that's her one chance to turn the townspeople into readers again."

"The Library Dragon" by Carmen Agra Deedy and Illustrated by Michael P. White

"When Sunrise Elementary School advertised for a thick-skinned librarian with a burning love of books, Miss Lotta Scales knew she was perfect for the job. Who could guard books better than a REAL dragon?"

3.


"Library Mouse" by Daniel Kirk

"Sam’s home was in a little hole in the wall in the children’s reference books section, and he thought that life was very good indeed. For Sam loved to read. He read picture books and chapter books, biographies and poetry, and ghost stories and mysteries. Sam read so much that finally one day he decided to write books himself!"

"Tomas and the Library Lady" by Pat Mora and Illustrated by Raul Colon

"One morning, while his parents pick corn, Tomás visits the imposing town library and meets a kindly librarian who gently coaxes him inside. Throughout the hot days thereafter, she offers Tomás cool drinks of water and adventurous escapes into books; on slow days he teaches her Spanish until it's time to return home to Texas."

"The Library" by Sarah Stewart and Illustrated by David Small

"Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls and she doesn't like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. Lots of books. The only problem is that her library has gotten so big she can't even use her front door anymore. What should Elizabeth Brown do? Start her own public library, of course!"

  2. Another great book is Ms Brooks Loves Books (and I don't). The librarian Ms. Brooks helps students find books they will love. She also is known to dress up in book character costumes. :)
