* ''[[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.

* 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.

* In the ''{{Ravenloft}}'' setting, the lich-king Azalin has a library which houses the self-updating life stories of every sentient being who has ever been born in his domain of Darkon, or who's entered it and stayed long enough to lose all memory of their previous life. Destroying your own book is one of the few ways to recover from Darkon's insidious IdentityAmnesia effect.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' also has a stat for an arcane library. In both cases the stat is called Library.

to:

* The ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' has quite a few:
** The biggest is the Athenaeum, a domain of TheUnderworld with a copy of ''everything'' in history that's been written and then lost, from cave paintings to blog posts. On the other hand, it's an unmappable EldritchLocation with no indexing system, an [[SmallAnnoyingCreature owl infestation]], and guardians who really hate mages. There's also the matter of arranging a trip to the Underworld that isn't one-way.
**
''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' also has a stat Merit for an characters who want their own arcane library. In both cases library. One of the stat is called Library.magical orders, the Mysterium, dedicates itself to filling and maintaining magical archives, usually with [[SecretGovernmentWarehouse vaults of magic artifacts]] attached.
** ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' has some options for adding fey magic to a library, including archives stored in [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles talkative skulls]] and books that multiply when nobody's watching.

* ''Literature/SchooledInMagic'': The school library is filled with books of (and book on) magic. Emily spends a great deal of time in there for both classes as well as personal study. Eventually she even begins working as an aid to the librarian. The punishment for making noise in the library is an hour as a stone statue. This punishment is magically enforced and automatic.
