Librarian Heroes

Rupert Giles (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), High School librarian, is out to save the world from demons. Former wizard and possessing mean fighting skills, he’s a bit of a technophobe.

Barbara Gordon, PhD., head of the Gotham City Library, aka “Batgirl” and now “Oracle”, brings down the bad guys in Gotham and cyberspace.

Evelyn ‘I am a librarian’ Carnahan (“The Mummy” movies), travels the world in search of ancient texts and battles the undead.

While library work is not quite as dangerous as for their fictional counterparts, real life librarians are heroes none the less. They share their technology wizarding skills with patrons, retrieve elusive information with a mouse click, and help us travel the universe with their book recomendations.

Tuesday is National Library Workers Day. We send thanks to our Ocee librarians: John, Carla B, Carla H.O., Roberta, Joythi, Emma, Irina, Carol, Vanita, Ginny, Andrea, Karen G., Karen K., Marcia, Jane, and Jeanne.
