The Truth About Librarians

Stereotypes can often play a huge role in shaping our opinons on people or things we know little about, so I decided to take on five fairly common stereotypes about librarians and share why they aren't as accurate as you may have thought they were.

Comments welcome and as always, happy reading (and watching)!


  1. Fun video, Monica. You are spot on about these stereotypes. I'm glad you cleared them up.

    The mean one is the one that bugs me the most. I have never met a mean librarian. Actually quite the contrary, they have always been super nice and patient with me. Especially the college ones who are the ones I bugged the most (all that research).

    With you on Wikipedia, girl. Helpful but only for pre-research.

    1. I'm so glad you liked it! As a young librarian who had such a great library school experience, I just want people to start seeing this profession the same way I do. Thanks so much for your comments!
