Did you know we have books about our very own selves (librarians!) in our library? How meta is that!
Library wars : love & war. 1 / story and art by Kiiro Yumi ; original concept by Hiro Arikawa ; [English translation & adaptation, Kinami Watabe].
“Iku Kasahara has dreamed of joining the Library Forces ever since one of its soldiers stepped in to protect her favourite book from being confiscated in a bookstore when she was younger. But now that she’s finally a recruit, she’s finding her dream job to be a bit of a nightmare. Especially since her hard-hearted drill instructor seems to have it in for her!” (Syndetics summary)
Evil librarian / Michelle Knudsen.
“He’s young. He’s hot. He’s also evil. He’s . . . the librarian. When Cynthia Rothschild’s best friend, Annie, falls head over heels for the new high-school librarian, Cyn can totally see why. He’s really young and super cute and thinks Annie would make an excellent library monitor. But after meeting Mr. Gabriel, Cyn realizes something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the creepy look in the librarian’s eyes, or the weird feeling Cyn gets whenever she’s around him. Before long Cyn realizes that Mr. Gabriel is, in fact . . . a demon. Now, in addition to saving the school musical from technical disaster and trying not to make a fool of herself with her own hopeless crush, Cyn has to save her best friend from the clutches of the evil librarian, who also seems to be slowly sucking the life force out of the entire student body!” (adapted from Syndetics summary)
Unshelved. Volume 1 / Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum.
“Welcome to Unshelved, the world’s only daily comic strip set in a public library! Writer Gene Ambaum (the made-up name of a real-life librarian) and co-writer and artist Bill Barnes have been publishing since February 16, 2002. Some of the stories are made up, some of them are based on real life, and some are absolutely true stories sent to us from our readers. And the stranger the story, the more likely it is to be true.” (Syndetics summary) Also as eBooks!
