* ''Literature/TheInvisibleLibrary'' exists on a separate plane of existence and the {{Magic Librarian}}s do not age while they are there. They are sent out to all kinds of parallel universes to acquire rare books, sometimes by illegal means, using their very own magic, the [[CompellingVoice Language]] to manipulate the reality around them. It is hinted at that this collecting of specific books that only exist in one universe serves some higher purpose, and might even stabilize reality, but it is not entirely clear in the first book of the triology.

*''Literature/TheZombieKnight'' has the Library of Erudition, a vast and [[GeniusLoci semi-living]] compendium of knowledge, still standing despite being in the [[DeathWorld death continent]] of Exoltha. It has books on every subject, but has been known to [[YourSoulIsMine devour the souls and knowledge]] of those who take any of them without the [[MagicLibrarian magically bound Keeper's]] permission.

*[[Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone The library in Tevri'ed]], to a degree; it has dangerous [[TomeOfEldritchLore tomes of arcane lore]] in the guarded basement, but it is otherwise a large, accessible, well-attended civic place with ordinary civilian librarians.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs Papa Smurf]] belongs to the Wizard's Library, which contains "the most powerful spells in all the world" as he puts it. (You must be certified by the Board of Wizards to get a library card, as he tells Greedy, who expresses interest in reading the magical cookbooks the place has.) Unfortunately, in that same episode, the villain [[EvilSorcerer Nemesis]] breaks into the place's forbidden vault of black magic, [[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow the Archives of Evil.]]

* One episode of Jackie Chan Adventures made it the focus as a [[VanishingVillage vanishing castle]] that only appeared during the full moon and disappeared at dawn. If you don't make it out before then you go along with it and become bound as its guardian, forced to transform and attack any uninvited guests.
