WHAT I WEAR AS A LIBRARIAN

As a librarian, I’m always on the move, assisting students, library patrons, teachers, and community members. Comfort is key for me – you’ll rarely catch me in anything but comfy clothes! Pants are reserved for super special occasions because I just get too hot! And of course, comfortable shoes are a must. This blog post showcases the actual librarian outfits I wear while working at the library.

Librarians bring a charming and romantic touch to Hallmark Movies with their love for books and knowledge.

Librarian Clothes

My clothing choices have remained consistent among an elementary school, secondary school, and community college librarian, as the tasks and dynamics of being a librarian are remarkably alike whether you’re in a kindergarten or higher education setting.

I love button-downs because they're so easy to slip on and off. I went for an XL, which might be a tad too large, but I'm totally digging the vibe it gives off!
