Libraries and Librarians As Characters

If living your profession is not quite fulfilling enough and you just have to have justification that libraries and librarians can hold star quality outside of your circle of colleagues, then perhaps you’d be interested in a blog by Robert Richart which posts an entry daily from a bibliography he has published, Promise the Infinite, of libraries and librarians in English language novels from the 18th to the 21st century. Who would believe there would be enough material for a blog based on this criteria?  Well, here’s the proof.  All genres from romance to science fiction are represented.  Now, just make sure your library orders some of these titles.
