BEST MOVIE EVER SET IN A LIBRARY?

1208358_343224559213020_902474558_nYou know it’s The Breakfast Club, which turned (gulp!) thirty this month! Five total strangers, with nothing in common, meeting for the first time. A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. …before the day was over, they broke the rules.

But we all know the best part of the movie was just how cool their school library was! Who didn’t covet that library with its multi-tiered Danish modern vibe and that banging sound system!!

Can you think of any other movies set in libraries? Let us know in the comment section!

    While I agree Breakfast Club is an excellent movie- and perhaps the best one set IN a library- the all-time best movie set in a library about a librarian is Party Girl starring Parker Posey. It turns a young twenty this year!

    Yes! Oranges and peaches! The inspiration for the Lego librarian! http://youtu.be/V58FH_0jwjY
