Songs about libraries and books

Libraries (and librarians) are inexhaustible sources of inspiration. These are represented in books (Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose), films (The Public, directed by Robin Bissell) series (The Librarians, directed by Jonathan Frakes) and even paintings (VIEIRA DA SILVA, Maria Helena. A Biblioteca, 1949).

But what about music? Amazingly, there is a panoply of songs about libraries and librarians. After a brief search*, here is a list as selected by Member Services staff member David Goncalves.
