According to the December 5th edition of American Libraries Direct...

American Library Association (ALA) has partnered with the TNT network to help promote its new series The Librarians, which premieres December 7. The show (trailer, 2:16) is about an ancient organization of librarians responsible for protecting the world’s greatest magical relics (like Excalibur) stored beneath the fictional Metropolitan Public Library. ALA helped TNT find six adventurous librarians to highlight on the show’s website and social media channels: They are Liana Juliano, Felton Thomas (above), Henry Mendelsohn, Jessica Zaker, Audrey Barbakoff, and Aaron Schmidt. ALA President Courtney Young attended a premiere party for the show in New York City on December 3 to present one of the stars, Christian Kane, with an honorary ALA membership. Kane promotes libraries in this video PSA (0:54).
