The Librarians of Night Vale
nightvalecommunityfanon:


The “books” Steve Carlsberg read are hilariously nonthreatening titles like “Green and Eggs and Ham” that were banned by the city council for reasons like “Author does not actually have a doctorate and thus is a horrible liar. Also eggs are magenta, not green”. He once tried to have a conversation with his “intellectual equal” Tamika Flynn, who just kind of rolled her eyes at him before walking away and muttering “amateur”. Steve took it as another example of no one listening to him.

Tamika continued, “We will grow soft without books, Night Vale,” as she waved her favorite copy of Helen DeWitt’s ‘The Last Samurai’, onlookers shielding their eyes from the forbidden tome.
Welcome to Night Vale, episode 54: A Carnival Comes to Town
Books and libraries are dangerous, which is exactly why we should protect them. Librarians are conniving and vicious monsters, but they also know how to recommend a good read. Their methods may be violent, but we must be willing to face great challenges in order to achieve great things.
Welcome to Night Vale, episode 54: A Carnival Comes to Town
New mayor Dana Cardinal issued a public rebuke of book cleaning. The mayor admitted that while books are pretty dangerous and she doesn’t recommend them for everyone, we should concentrate more on protecting ourselves from the librarians themselves who are the real danger.

The Cleaning of the Books is our way of double-checking that the librarians are keeping a clean stock of municipally-approved books such as the biography of Helen Hunt and all four of Dean Koontz’s novels.

During Old Oak Doors, Lauren Mallard proudly declares, “Also, we know everyone fears libraries in Night Vale, which is why Strexcorp will tear down the library, destroy the dangerous librarians, and replace it with StrexBooks Purchase Centers!”
If only Lauren had paid more attention to episode 29, she would know that if destroying the Library were that easy, it would’ve happened long ago. Night Vale already burns the building to the ground every few days. Even Tamika Flynn could only save so many people from the Summer Reading Program. What chance does Strexcorp think it has?
Under the cut, by request: all the canon information we have about the Night Vale Public Library — its policies, its surrounding businesses, and its Librarians.
Complete through episode 54.

Librarians are well known for sneaking in books by dangerous authors. In 1988, two copies of “Pride and Prejudice” were found in Night Vale. No one knows quite how many people read these copies, but the ensuing riots inconvenienced hundreds and led to the current cleaning schedule.
