This movie is a must for any librarian worthy of the profession
Parker Posey gives new meaning the Dewey Decimal System. Embracing library life she shows that those who work in libraries are not all eye-glass wearing, bun in the hair, sensible shoe types. AND the sound track can't be beat. This one gets me dancing every single time!
The story is sweet and fun. Posey is on target as a typical wild child avoiding work at all costs.
Librarians around the world should have this movie in their personal collections for viewing anytime. A great pick me up!
The stereotypes for librarians are out there - it is nice when mass media blows up those stereotypes (another place the stereotype was recently blasted was on the on the pages of BUST magazine in April 2004).
