The Librarian : A Cool Job

I have always enjoyed sitting in the library, be it in school or college. Well from the past three years I have been visiting a good library which I managed to find near my house. But that’s not what this post is about. It’s not much about the library, I want to focus on the librarian.
Yes, the librarian. Ever gave a thought to pick up this job? Sitting for hours at a single desk, watching others reading, talking in whispers and most of all the silence for hours.
Not many would like the idea, what if the library is not any usual one but the kind of library as shown in The Librarian film series? Well if its for real, then let me tell you, I would be the first one to volunteer for such a job.

The librarian in the movie series :
Flynn Carsen(Noah Wyle), a 31 year old student who has who has 22 academic degrees(12 Bachelors, 6 Masters, and 4 Ph.D.s). He is a kind of guy who just refuses to stop learning and leave the college. One of his professors kicks him out of college, insisting that he should get some real-world experience. And thus Flynn gets out into the real world, ready with his knowledge.

The library in the movie series :

A huge magical library which has all the records of every miraculous thing ever happened. Also the magical weapons, items, etc that you only hear in legends, fairy tales or bed times stories are kept here. Some of the items include The Ark of Covenant, Excalibur the sword, Aladdin' flying carpet,etc.


The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (2004) was the first film in the series. It introduced us to the characters and told about the quest for spear of destiny, between the librarian and the evil Brotherhood of serpents.

The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines (2006) was the second film, which showed the librarian traveling to
King Solomon's Mines to protect the Book of Solomon, hidden in the mines, which will give the reader of it control over time and space. And obviously the evil men must have to be stopped from doing it.

The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice (2008) was the third film where Flynn Carsen, our librarian finds himself in the midst of uncovering a conspiracy that involves the notorious vampire Prince Vlad Dracul. Here Flynn protects one of the world's most sacred artifacts, the Judas Chalice, from falling into wrong hands.

The Librarian is a series of made-for-TV original movies for Turner Network Television. They may not fit the standards of normal feature films like
Indiana Jones series but they are good in their own terms. The films are light hearted comedies with some elements from the fairy tales and bed time stories, guaranteed to entertain you.

  3. @ Divenita : Thank you. Who wouldn't want this kind of job? But then you can't tell anyone what kind of job you do, everyone will think of you as a just boring librarian.
