%% One quote is sufficient. Please place additional entries on the quotes tab.

A very attractive but prim and prudish woman, who would be gorgeous if she would just [[TheGlassesGottaGo take off the glasses]] ([[{{Meganekko}} or not]]), [[LettingHerHairDown let down her hair]], and unbutton her top button (or not, even without blueshifting). However, they tend to prefer more intellectual pursuits. Sometime during the course of the season, the character will be forced to do all of these things to solve some sort of problem involving a lecherous man, but will always manage to escape the situation without sex.

Naturally, there's a segment of people who find this the [[NerdsAreSexy reason they're hot]] in the first place. Possibly there's also a hope that she's [[NaughtyByNight deeply familiar with stuff]] in the [[GeniusBonus 155.3 or 613.9 sections]] of the Dewey Decimal Classification System [[note]]For those who don't understand the reference, the Dewey Decimal Classification System is a system which serves to sort documents depending to a large hierarchy of themes linked to specific numbers; 155.3 and 613.9 are respectively sex from a psychological approach and sex from a medical approach[[/note]]

Contrast ScaryLibrarian (though [[FemmeFatale they can overlap]]), see also BeautifulAllAlong. Compare MagicLibrarian, which is [[HotWitch more likely to overlap.]] (Sometimes, [[HornyDevils all three may overlap.]]) Compare HotForTeacher. Note that the character doesn't actually have to be employed as a ''librarian'' to fit this trope, as long as they fit the physical description (glasses, skirt, hair in a bun etc.) and share the same character traits (nerdy, shy and sexy). This is also common among school teachers, especially in Westerns and Historicals.

Please note that this applies to a character, not simply any hot actor playing a librarian, for the same reason RealLife examples are not listed here. Most actors are [[SexSells "hot" in the first place]], so it usually goes unsaid. You can have an attractive librarian ''without'' their hotness being a plot element in the work - that would ''not'' fall under "Hot Librarian".

Compare CuteBookworm for shy, sweet characters that like to read a lot.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* Even in the 1960s, cigarette companies were advertising in ''Playboy'' with hot librarians—[[http://www.flickr.com/photos/modashell/3315115551/ reading topless, of course]].
* An eyeglass maker is showing a very attractive woman, who has selected the right glasses, who is going to now roleplay the part of the "naughty librarian." "You've had some ''very'' overdue books..."
** Specifically as of 2012, Lenscrafters has an ad out featuring a Hot Librarian-looking woman staring at the camera, a knowing smile on her face, and purring "You've got a LOOOOOT of late fees, mister! Maybe someone should teach you to bring in your books on time!" Freeze frame occurs, pausing the video on the bespectacled woman smiling and a voiceover says "'The Naughty Librarian,' and other looks on sale at Lenscrafters!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has a rare male example in Albireo Imma. In-series, the girls comment on his attractiveness, and he lives under the huge Library Island surrounded by thousands of books.
* Cecilia Lacques from Manga/{{Claudine}}, who works as a librarian in the local all girls's school and catches the attention of the main character due to her beauty. [[spoiler: And she was one of the lovers of Claudine's ''father'', actually. [[TearJerker It all ends in tears]].]]
* [[Anime/ReadOrDie Yomiko Readman]] is a fusion of this and CuteBookworm.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* Diana Prince in ''WonderWoman'', whose unbuttoning is part of her transformation into the titular character.
* Similarly, Barbara Gordon, secretly the first Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} in the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics and the ''Series/{{Batman}}'' TV show. Even as the wheelchair-bound computer hacker Oracle, she's drawn as hot with glasses, simply proving that NerdsAreSexy.
** Bonus points for being an actual librarian back when she was Batgirl.
* Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'s "much-vaunted disguise, the legendary Librarian Sexy", drawn to the hilt.
** She even {{lampshaded|Trope}} it when she first wore said outfit (as bait), wondering if anyone would be fooled by her "librarian-from-a-porn-movie" getup... seconds before being [[DamselInDistress drugged,]] BoundAndGagged by the [[MonsterOfTheWeek villain of the short]].
** When she gets home in that issue, she's trying to brag to Thug Boy about her mission, but his POV of her outfit keeps shoving her talk bubbles out of the frame. Eventually he just grabs her and carries her to the bedroom.
* Hillary Page from the ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'' SpinOff: ''JackOfFables''. She even wears a T-Shirt that says "Hot Librarian."
** Arguably, the three Page sisters qualify under this. Jack seems to think so. At least until [[spoiler:he discovers that they are actually his half-sisters.]]
* Jeanne-Marie Beaubier, secret identity/other personality of ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'''s Aurora, dresses like a hot librarian, but she's a school teacher.
* A male example; Khan from the library of time in ''ComicBook/GoldDigger''.
* ''DarkAvengers'' gave us Victoria Hand.
* [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Sue Richards]] dressed like one [[http://images.wikia.com/marveldatabase/images/b/b1/Sue_storm_became_a_teacher.jpg when she became a teacher]] for a while, with the addition of wearing a short skirt.
* When Meriem becomes a HotTeacher in ''{{Cavewoman}}: Killing Dinos 101'', she wears a sexy librarian outfit that she later strips off to reveal her FurBikini.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Work]]
* Twilight Sparkle from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fits this trope as far as personality goes, but she's more of a Cute Librarian than a hot one. In fanart however, it's quite popular to go this route with her, ''especially'' when she's drawn as a human.
* [[http://www.horribleturn.com/ Horrible Turn]], the fan-made prequel to ''[[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Doctor Horrible]]'', features one of these.
* In ''[[http://kinsfire.fanficauthors.net/Harry_Potter_and_the_Paradigm_Shift/Chapter_10/ Harry Potter and the Paradigm Shift]]'' Ron teasingly remarked that maybe Harry and Hermione could do "that Sexy Librarian fantasy" one of the guys at her new school wanted to perform with her.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2100544/2/Past-Lives Past Lives]]'' one of Hermione's former lives was head of the Great Library of Alexandria. After Harry cast a spell (at her urging) which brought this personality to the fore, she transfigured her school uniform into a tight black leather outfit and conjured up a bullwhip.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Jessica, a schoolteacher ''and'' the future [[MrsClaus Mrs. Claus]] from ''SantaClausIsCominToTown'', right down to the LettingHerHairDown and taking off her glasses (the latter of which she does right after meeting [[SantaClaus Kris Kringle]]).
* RachelWeisz's character from ''{{The Mummy|Trilogy}}'' actually is a librarian. And ''extremely'' hot. Apparently they discover contact lenses or laser surgery in the twenties, though, because she never puts the glasses back on after the first time she takes them off.
** Arguably, they're reading glasses, and she doesn't need them to see other things. At least until the sequel, in which she is required to read again, and still doesn't put the glasses back on.
** FridgeBrilliance for the first film. She lost all her clothes on the river boat and was forced to buy new stuff when they got to the market. A desert market is unlikely to have glasses for sale.
* Mary Bailey from ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'': If her husband, George, had never been born, she never would've married and would've become a librarian (but still hot though).
* Carolina (SalmaHayek), in ''{{Desperado}}'', although [[spoiler:she, like the entire town, acts as a mule for the Big Bad's money; the library is just a front]].
* Lara in ''Film/DoctorZhivago'' spends some time as a librarian.
* Best ''FilmNoir'' example: the rare-books shop girl Marlowe encounters in ''Film/TheBigSleep'', who whips off her glasses, lets her hair down and closes up the shop suggestively (with Marlowe still in it) at the end of her scene.
** Oddly enough, this scene, and the one with the taxi driver offering Marlowe her number, don't happen in the book, where Marlowe's [[ChasteHero ability to control his sexual desires]] is a big part of his character. However, even in the book, Marlowe notes that the bookshop clerk is [[MatzoFever very good-looking for a Jewish girl]], so the trope stands.
*** Marlowe is very much in control in the movie as well; he's just luckier.
* In ''Tomcats'', Jerry O'Connell dated a librarian at one point. She's prim, proper, a bit shy and lives with her Gramma. Oh, and they're both into S&M.
* The Librarian from ''The Station Agent'' definitely quantifies as an HL.
** Finn's friends even [[LampshadeHanging draw attention to it]], telling him to [[{{Meganekko}} buy her glasses]] so they can play Hot Librarian.
* In ''Film/OrangeCounty'', Creator/JackBlack's character unleashes the inner beast within prim desk clerk Mona (played by Jane Adams). She tries to stop him from breaking into the building and he suggests they start a revolution together. Later they're shown lying down, possibly having slept together, getting high. She ends up being an accessory in burning down the building (metaphorical for her inner sexuality-fire-having been lit up)
* Lucy Sherwood in ''Film/TheManWhoNeverWas'' was this. Her roommate was an intell analyst who was a LadyOfWar.
* MaggieGyllenhaal in ''Film/{{Secretary}}'' is not technically a librarian (see SexySecretary) but fits the trope well.
* Averted in ''Film/ThatTouchOfMink''. Roger (Gig Young) is dictating and stops in the middle to ask Miss Jones (Jan Burrell) to take off her glasses and shake her hair back. Miss Jones is very near sighted and looks around, nearly blind, with very squinty eyes looking even less attractive than with her glasses on.
* DianeKruger as Dr. Abigail Chase - a historical records agent who works at the National Archives - in ''Film/NationalTreasure''.
* Caroline Bliss's take on Miss Moneypenny in the Timothy Dalton ''Film/JamesBond'' entries ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'' and ''Film/LicenseToKill'' evokes this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jokes]]
* A man walks into a library and asks the librarian whether he could take out some books. She says yes. He then asks if he could take ''her'' out. "Sir," she said, blushing, "Us librarians are for reference only."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* One of the ultimates is Elizabeth Peter's ''JaquelineKirby''. She was a pre-Amelia Peabody Emerson, and though never as popular as that character ended up with probably six or seven excellent third-person mysteries to her name. She is, when she lets herself "unbutton" (i.e. takes off her glasses, lets down her hair, and...well, unbuttons her blouse) a gorgeous redhead who manages to turn men to a weak-kneed jelly and is a remarkably proficient sleuth.
* Miss Christobel Charteris, the female lead from Florence Barclay's book ''Through the Postern Gate''. Also TheOjou.
* On the Literature/{{Discworld}}, Sacharissa Cripslock (introduced in ''Discworld/TheTruth'') was a prim and severely-dressed young woman who impressed her new boss, newspaper editor William de Worde, as no more than average-looking. However, he eventually realised that she was in fact stunningly beautiful ''if considered over several centuries'' - the equivalent of a Renaissance face, pre-Raphaelite eyes, Classical figure and, for some reason, "good medieval ears". And ''that'' as just her face; her body featured "[[BuxomIsBetter a well crafted supply of other features that never go out of fashion at all]]", and for some reason she seemed to think that wearing extremely plain dresses would ''downplay'' this fact.
* In the WildCards series, Jennifer Malloy, also known as the elite thief Wraith, almost qualifies. She's a very attractive blond, a librarian in the New York Public Library's rare books collection, dresses down and puts her hair up as a librarian (as Wraith she wears a [[{{Stripperiffic}} black string bikini, a mask and ballet slippers]])... but I don't think she wears glasses.
* PlayedForLaughs with Miss Laburnum from Creator/MargaretMahy's ''The Librarian and the Robbers''.
* Lirael, from the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' books, may not wear glasses, and hides behind her hair rather than keeping it tied back, but it's implied that she's good looking at several points, and she is actually a librarian, specifically, a second assistant librarian in the great library of the Clayr, which is filled with all sorts of dangerous things, as well as books.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* Jill Taylor in ''HomeImprovement''. In one episode, she and her husband debate whether she can succeed in a job interview without being good-looking. She puts her hair up in a bun and goes for the "librarian look" and Tim admits that he's more attracted to her than ever.
* Subverted with Kitty on ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'': after GOB tells her to take off her glasses and let her hair down, he shrieks at her ugliness/crosseyedness and requests she undoes them. Later, he tries various combinations of these, to no avail.
** Of course, all efforts to make her look ugly aside, JudyGreer, who plays Kitty, is actually very attractive.
* An episode, "Page Turner" of ''{{CSINY}}'' featured a fairly attractive librarian. She was, however, "hot" for another reason - [[spoiler: she'd been murdered with radioactive Thallium 201]].
* In the first episode of ''{{Dollhouse}}'', ElizaDushku puts her hair up, wears severe clothes and glasses, and looks completely different. Still hot, but completely different. (She's actually a negotiator, not a librarian.)
** Also [[SummerGlau Bennett]] [[spoiler:although with a side of AxCrazy]]. It's even lampshaded by Topher.
* Wesley from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' has the prim, stuck up, sexually awkward look down to a tea.
** And Giles, the actual librarian. Also a case of [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Grandpa What Massive Hotness You Have]].
** What about Fred from ''Series/{{Angel}}''? She was an actual librarian, too. Also a HotScientist.
* Joanna Frankel, one of the PowerTrio on ''Series/{{Eastwick}}'', has a habit of looking up from under her ridiculously hot glasses.
* In the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Library", Kramer hooks up with a fetching librarian: "...she needs a little tenderness. She needs a little understanding. She needs a little [[KavorkaMan ''Kramer''."]]
** "Yeah, and then she's gonna need a little penicillin!"
* in the 1972 ABC TV movie ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067723/ Second Chance]]'', the 1960s sex symbol Juliet Prowse played teacher Martha Foster, who didn't exactly look like the prim and proper frontier teacher heroine Geoff Smith (played by tough guy actor Brian Keith) was expecting to find.
* [[TinaFey Liz Lemon]] is called this by the 25-year-old coffee boy on ''Series/ThirtyRock''.
* Tara Carlisle, the attorney of one of the Series/{{Leverage}} team's clients, is obviously not a librarian, but she still sort of fits this trope (enough that on meeting her in person for the first time, Hardison calls her "one sexy librarian"). [[spoiler:Or at least, she would fit the trope, if she were a real person, rather than a part played by a grifter auditioning for the team. She passed.]]
** A more straight example is Maggie, Nate's [[AmicablyDivorced ex-wife]]. She is an art expert, which is how she and Nate met.
* Kelso on ''Series/That70sShow'' ended up impregnating a beautiful librarian, played by Shannon Elizabeth.
* Lilith Sternin on ''{{Cheers}}'' and ''{{Frasier}}''. She's actually TheShrink, but fits this trope by appearance and personality.
* On the Britney/Brittany episode of {{Glee}}, BritneySpears adopts this look when she's playing the teacher in the Rachel's dream sequence (to the song "Baby One More Time" of course). Rachel, for her part, adopts the CatholicSchoolGirlsRule outfit for the song, in imitation of Britney in the original video.
** In a later episode, an ItsAWonderfulPlot dream sequence where New Directions never formed, Rachel was working as a library page after graduation, and her appearance elicited this reaction from certain fans.
* On a ''Series/{{Community}}'' Valentines Day episode, Troy and Abed both fall for a sexy librarian. Being good friends, they agree to let her decide between the two of them at the holiday dance.
-->'''Troy''': Why does being a librarian make her even hotter?
-->'''Abed''': They're keepers of knowledge. She holds the answers to all our questions, like 'Will you marry me?' and 'Why are there still libraries?'
-->'''Troy''': I wanna be a book. She could pick me up...flip through my pages...make sure no one drew wieners in me...
* On ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', Tammy II--Ron Swanson's second ex-wife--is (being played by [[WillAndGrace Megan]] [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Mullally]]) one of these. Combined with ScaryLibrarian. Also a sex fiend. Who turns Ron into one when she gets together with him. This is a major reason the Parks Department hates the Library.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Lisa Loeb has the look.
* The music video for Music/TearsForFears' song ''Head Over Heels'' features a Hot Librarian.
* The journalist in the music video for Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes." Complete with the glasses-off, hair-down, top-button bit at the end.
** In fact, Adam Ant seems to do this rather a lot. While not strictly this trope, "Strip" music video has a very prim, proper woman in glasses shown throughout the clip, until the end, when she flips out, kicks over a table and, you guessed it, takes off the glasses and starts to strip
* Music/TheBeatles' "Lovely Rita" has the characteristics of a hot librarian.
* My Morning Jacket has a song off of Evil Urges called "Librarian", which includes the lyrics "Simple little bookworm,/Buried underneath/Is the sexiest librarian./Take off those glasses and let down your hair for me." It's a really good song, too.
* The music video for Ludacris' "Splash Waterfalls" features one, getting turned on Ludacris through webcam.
* The woman in Toto's "Africa" video.
* HelenaBonhamCarter in RufusWainwright's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KvTDeHlIfI Out of the Game music video]].
* Bret from Music/BlueStahli has jokingly claimed this is his fashion style.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Myth and Legend]]
* The modern Hot Librarian is anticipated in spirit by Athena from ClassicalMythology: virgin, warrior, goddess of wisdom, protector of civilization. Also, quite hot, and desired -- but never actually achieved -— by any man, god, titan, or other being. OlderThanFeudalism.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games]]
* In {{Exalted}}, there are several examples;
** The iconic Twilight Caste Solar, Arianna, was a librarian (well, maid working at a library) who exalted while reading poetry (actually a cipher from the First Age). Technically only average in appearance, but tell that to the artists.
** The iconic Casteless Lunar, Madame Vert, who plays the part of a grieving widow taking care of her dear departed husband's library for his friends during the day... And seducing the local prince under the light of the full moon, in her beastman (beastwoman?) form no less.
** The Elder No Moon Lunar, Raksi, has taken the ruins of Sperimin, the greatest centre of learning in the First Age, and renamed them Mahalanka - the City of Ten Thousand Golden Delights. While she is actually some fifteen hundred years old, she also hasn't aged a day since she was 16.
** There's also Cynis Megara, an Air Aspect Terrestrial who feels like an outcast (note; not Outcaste) due to her scholarly inclination and talent for Sorcery - as opposed to the rest of her family, being decadent nobles to the core.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* The archetypal (and possibly first) Hot Librarian was Marian Paroo from the play and film ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', who was literally the town librarian.
** What can I do my dear/ to make it clear/ I love you madly, madly madame librarian, Marion!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games]]
* Grace Nakanmura from ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight'' the AdventureGame[=/=]{{Horror}} series fits this to a T. Especially in the first one.
* The title character of the game ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', to the point that people joke about her resemblance to SarahPalin.
* Quistis Trepe of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' certainly applies for the hot part, if not the librarian. She became a teacher at the age of 18 because she was a prodigy, though she did [[spoiler: get fired after a year for not having "good leadership skills" (Seifer was one of her students, and look how ''that'' turned out)]]. Even that [[StatusQuoIsGod gets reversed by the end]], so it's all good.
* Victorian Principles, from ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 7'', a literal librarian example. One of Larry's goals, which he eventually achieves all too well, is to unleash her inner sex maniac, which he accomplishes by swapping one of her books with ''The Erotic Adventures of Hercules''.
* Jolene from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. On the job, she wears average business attire and glasses, [[spoiler:but in the local juice shop, she sports a cocktail dress and loses the glasses. She doesn't actually say her name, just the fact that you already know her rather well]].
* [=TeeTee=] in ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher 4'', MsFanservice when you meet her, ends up working for a scholarly type of guy at one point and tries to pull off this trope by adding the librarian with the clothes and letting her own looks supply the "hot".
* The Professor from ''VideoGame/{{Contact}}'' reacts to Terry's apparent crush on Nadia by saying she has a sort of "Evil Librarian" vibe to her.
* Yuuko from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' is one of these when she's not working at the café.
* This is one of the two most common interpretations of Koakuma from ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou]]'', as an orderly and shy aide of [[MagicLibrarian Patchouli]]. The other interpretation is [[HornyDevil less prude]]. Either version is dressed properly, though.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/GroovyKinda'', Anya Langerak appears to be a shy, somewhat overweight CuteBookworm. As the story unfolds, we find out that this Children's Librarian is the former love slave to Eleanor, and has a deep submissive streak. She also sports some world-class cleavage when hosting a dinner for Larry and Edison.
* ''HolidayWars'': Misses Cooper, Administrative Assistants Day, fits perfectly into those role and even has the [[IdenticalStranger Tina Fey/Sarah Palin]] glasses to match, she first appears in [[http://www.th3rdworld.com/web-comic/Holiday-Wars/episode/Holiday-Wars-Episode-15 this strip]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'':
** [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=2731 Crimney geeks out over a girl lugging stacks of books.]]
** Fuchsia , the "secret admirer/stalker from hell" with a crush on bookworm Criminy, disguises into one in an episode of [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3138 Sinfest Nights]]. Of course, [[ChasteHero Criminy]] being [[ObliviousToLove Criminy]]...
* ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'': Eccentric rich inventor Joe Rosenthal has [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2010/comic/book-10/06-jacob-travels-to-the-penis-building/hotlibrarian/ an entire COLLECTION of 'em!]]
* Phix in ''WapsiSquare'' is the curator of the Bibliothiki, a library in some nearby dimension that apparently houses every book ever written. Oh, and she's not only a hot babe but also a ''sphinx''. Recently she was seen in (very tall) human form dating Monica's boss at the museum.
* When [[http://betweenfailures.com/2008/09/08/348-madam-librarian/ Nina tells Ed that librarian was her first career choice]] in ''BetweenFailures'', he [[ImagineSpot envisioned]] her like this.
* Clarice of ''GirlsWithSlingshots'' fame ''wants'' to be a librarian, but for now is settling as a porn shop clerk and part-time dominatrix. She eventually became a part-time dominatrix/librarian, and even later gave up the dominatrix work because she was attracting stalkers in the library.
* One of the antagonists of GoodwillHeroes is named The Sexy Librarian, just in case the subtlety of her ensemble was lost on you.
* DubiousCompany's [[BloodKnight Tiren]] has this look in the highschool arc. Hilariously, all the artist did was put her in a suit instead of her ninja garb.
* Marlene of ''Webcomic/JetDream'', especially in her CharacterFocus story from ''[[http://tgcaps.com/caps/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/mjdr1_01.jpg.php My Jet Dream Romance]]''.
* In ''MenageA3'', the style is demonstrated and [[UpToEleven turned up to eleven]] by the completely imaginary [[EvilIsSexy evil]] version of Sandra [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/she_planned_treachery here.]]
* In ''{{Rhapsodies}}'' Bookstore owner, Kate, tries to make sure no one find out how good she looks with her hair down and wearing anything besides her usual thriftstore ensemble.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original]]
* Marina Orlova, a.k.a. [[http://www.hotforwords.com/ Hot for Words]], built herself on this trope. A beautiful young Russian philologist, she publishes weekly Website/YouTube videos defining and exploring the etymologies of requested words and phrases... all the while reminding her viewers that [[NerdsAreSexy intelligence is really sexy]].
* [[http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/the_best_american_poetry/2010/05/last-week-was-national-library-week-we-asked-poet-and-librarian-stephanie-brown-for-a-roundup-of-librarians-in-literature.html This blog post]], written by an actual librarian, analyzes this trope and describes an incident when a man tried to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] the trope in RealLife.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* Silvia Marpole from ''[[AGoofyMovie An Extremely Goofy Movie]]'' is just like this, seeming to have never got over the end of the 70's and turned to books to compensate. Later in the film, Goofy, who never really noticed the decade was over, manages to convince her into a BeautifulAllAlong moment (with bell bottoms and boobtubes, no less!)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has an episode in which Marge and Lisa go to see the movie ''Tango de la Muerte'', in which an aspiring champion dancer rejects all other partners to prefer a librarian "who's only read books on dancing". The dancer then takes her in his arms and spins her around a couple of times, prompting her glasses to fall off, her hair to come undone, and the top button of her blouse to pop off, ''precisely in that order''.
** Lisa has a crush on an older boy who works in the library, even though he's a {{jerkass}}.
* Professor Bertinelli, the secret identity of the Huntress, in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold Batman: The Brave and the Bold]]''.
* ''King of the Hill'' gives us this jewel:
-->'''Peggy''': And just who are the most attractive people in Arlen? Librarians when they take their glasses off!
* Referenced in an episode of ''PinkyAndTheBrain'', where Pinky wears glasses that give him a "saucy librarian look" and mentions taking them off and letting down their hair.
-->'''Brain:''' Pinky, don't act like an idiot 'til ''after'' you're elected.
