Libraries in Movies

In honor of National Library Week (April 13-19, 2008), why not watch a movie that features at least one scene that takes place in a library.

[What is National Library Week?
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.]
