“When in doubt, go to the library.”

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling

This What to Watch Wednesday, National Library Week continues, and we’re watching the written word and the hallowed halls which house them. Today, I thought I’d take a moment for the masters of them all, those knowledgeable shushers, your friendly, local librarian.

 Without them, some of us would wander the stacks for days, not knowing our Dewey Decimals from our Universal Decimals.

Yet, despite some of pop culture’s best efforts, some stereotypes remain regarding this noble profession…

But in this age of endless search results, it’s nice to know that somewhere out there is a real life person who can get you an answer…

Or a book recommendation…

And if “Ghostbusters” taught us anything, it’s the extraordinary courage of these everyday heroes….

So as you celebrate your local library this week (and every week), don’t forget to thank the women and men who make it all possible.

“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”

Neil Gaiman

Different Librarians, just as awesome…
