9 Great Songs About Libraries, Librarians, and Books

This week is National Library Week in the US, and in honor of that, I thought it’d be fun to round up some songs that are about libraries, librarians, or books. I’ve limited to songs that aren’t parodies or done by librarians to support libraries — these are songs from musicals, television, or from bands/singers you might be familiar with. But when you wrap up listening to these, do spend a little time digging into these awesome parody songs by librarians.

Some of these videos are excellently library-themed, too. And one thing I’ve learned in my research here is that if you’re single and looking for romance, the library seems like a really excellent place to find love.
