"The Librarians" is an Australian television comedy series which premiered on Wednesday 31 October 2007 on ABC TV. It is produced, written by and stars Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope, and is directed by Hope. The first series comprised six half-hour episodes.

The series centres on the trials and tribulations of Frances O'Brien, a devout Catholic and head librarian. Her life unravels when she is forced to employ her ex-best friend, Christine Grimwood - now a drug dealer - as the children's librarian. Frances must do all she can to contain her menacing past and concentrate on the biggest event of the library calendar - Book Week. The creators of the series also decided to make one of its central characters, Lachie Davis, dyslexic. [ [,21598,22652996-5005382,00.html The Librarians reviewed in The Sunday Times TV Guide] ]

The Librarians theme music is an upbeat variation on the popular jazz chart "A Night in Tunisia" by Dizzy Gillespie.

A second series with another six episodes will be filmed and aired in late 2008. [ [ Comedy business a winning formula] TV Tonight. April 15 2008. Retrieved on April 15 2008]
