* ''Literature/TheInvisibleLibrary'' exists on a separate plane of existence and the MagicLibrarians 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.

* [[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.

** The firm's "Files and Records" department has 35 full filing cabinets devoted to Angel / Angelus alone. The employee there seems to embody the department, with all the info stored in her brain.

** The library of Unseen University leads to other dimensions thanks to the sheer weight of accumulated knowledge distorting the space-time continuum. This is known as L-Space. The library itself is pretty much a universe of its own with all the magical books, library creatures such as the [[GrammarNazi thesaurus]] or the kickstool-crab, and lost tribes of research students inside. The books meanwhile are chained to the shelves; not, as in medieval Roundworld libraries, to protect the books themselves, but to protect the readers.

* ''[[Series/TheLibrarians2014 The Librarians]]'' has the same Library as [[Film/TheLibrarian the film series it's based on]], though its nature is expanded upon. In addition to holding many magical books and artifacts, it's also sentient on some level, BiggerOnTheInside (due to being housed in a separate dimension), and capable of [[ChaosArchitecture re-arranging rooms at will]]. At the start of the first season, the main Library is cut off from this world, leaving only the Annex for the protagonists to use. Flynn, the Librarian, spend the season trying to bring it back.
